‘On Translation’ is a series of pieces the artist started working on in 1995. It explores themes related to interpretation, translation and transcription. Starting from the notion that ‘we live in a translated world’, where transcription and translation processes are related to perception and information processes, the works in the series are complementary but also function as stand-alone pieces. On View is a work about looking and waiting as contemporary rituals: queues in airports and museums, tourists lining up to take a photo, and so on. The piece deliberately raises questions of ‘how’, ‘when’, ‘why’, ‘what’ and ‘who’.
