For this piece I was inspired by argument that I found in Internet about the criticism of the Quran. Since Muslims revere the Qur'an as miraculous and inimitable, they argue that the holy text should not be isolated from its true form to another language or form, at least not without keeping the original text along with. Language and culture have been changed through decades and there are still many people persist that text available today always have been kept unchanged.
This project illustrates a person who is calmly creating her own unique language in a process of hand printing for an audience who doesn’t speak it. By use of this technic, she challenges this arguments to show how the process of reading can be changed through separate transformations to an unknown language.
