Cerith Wyn Evans, ‘Chandeliers’ (2003)

The ‘Chandelier’ sculptures evoke notions of otherworldly communication by using sections of texts that have been translated into the flashing light signals of Morse Code, such as ”Diary: How to improve the world (you will only make matters worse)” continued 1968 from ‘M’ writings ’67-’72 by John Cage.

 


Diana Duta

Diana Duta, ‘Keeping time’ (2010)

Diana Duta translated the lyrics of Romanian pop-songs from her birthyear to phonetic English. These lyrics were sung by her (non-Romanian) friends and recorded to tape with Duta playing drums in the background. During the exhibition ‘If you say something, see something’ at Tent., Rotterdam, she asked employees of the space to wear T-shirts she had silkscreened with the lyrics.

Check the edit she made of the recordings here.
