'M(Other) Tongues: a language fiction' evolves as an own-paced narrative based on food production practices which extended beyond the kitchen by means of fermentation. An organic and symbiotic form of change and growth.
The narrative develops through a building and breaking down of etymologies and structures of certain terms, word-making as a political act. By understanding how language creates collective conventions, we can play with it to subvert them. The multiple storylines draw parallels and perpendiculars between language, collective rituals, industrial work and domestic food production through a historical, linguistic and associative lens. Dirty knowledge.
