In Mother Tongue, a set of three screen-prints with integrated three sound pieces were presented at both the Multiple Matters (Vienna) and Print Without Borders (Oldenburg): part of the International Print Triennial 2010. The work was an investigation of how to represent in two-dimensional form such as print, a passage of time, and the ephemeral moments in the development of a child’s relationship with language. The three prints depict recognizable visual representations of sound such as waveforms and phonetic symbols. These marks were visual artefacts of temporal sounds, used to archive and preserve transitory events/moments in space and time. The work explored a relationship between two-dimensional works, such as print, and digital sound; how sound can navigate the viewer through the image.
