Languages and Futures: (Not all is) Lost in Translation

May 20, 2022

In this map of Languages, a future is imagined/projected wherein, considering the current rate of languages dying out, a point of a single global language is reached. This language, over the course of thousands of years, continues to be reduced and abbreviated to a point where the spoken language is dead altogether. Gestures are left and sound is removed. This journey of starting with no spoken language to ending with no spoken language gave rise to a map that is circular, representing a continuum.
