An intimate project about words and pleasure.

This involved protracted private conversations with strangers in which we explored personal and secret words from childhood, pet-names, words that amused them or that they enjoyed the sound of etc, in different languages. The participant eventually chose a single work to record on a 15 second semi-disposable unit. This was left with me. They then chose someone else’s previous recording to take away – a process that involved careful listening to other’s individual linguistic pleasures.
