Finding Tatarian fell out of your hands. My mother is fluent but illiterate, the language contained in her, unable to speak without a correspondent. As I felt I was constantly speaking foreign languages, the internet yielded one book in physical copy unavailable in my obscure location. Then, when looking up the bio for my favorite musician, I went through a series of mindless Wikipedia clicks which brought me to a free audio CD on learning Tatarian. Missing a link of having the language passed down to me aurally, the internet provides a medium by which I can link myself.

This piece was created as an installation together with a drawer for Artel Collective Show: Opps.
