Activity Genesix



Description

The artwork

Genesix

Digital Art, 2020

This piece is a comparative study of the translation of a single text into six different Indo-European languages :

  • By pressing reset, you return to the very first texts
  • The primary Matter is “Genesis” Chapter 1 of the Old Testament (first written in Hebrew)

By shrinking the paragraphs’ line heights until no more readability, Genesix focusses on the physiology of the text and not its meaning anymore.

Is there a correlation between the time spent on reading a text and the impact it gets in each culture?
