What does misunderstanding look like? How do we articulate ourselves when those around us do not understand? What does it look like when the perception inside our heads is different than what comes out? This piece explores the struggle of being understood, and questions if we must always have clarity. If the words hung in the window are hard to read, cannot be perfectly seen, does the art still function? The goal is for the frustration that happens in the mind to be experienced by the audience, and for the audience to ponder how it is that we communicate.
