Forgotten Languages

Marisol Cavia

 

 

In the last three months I have been asking my friends and family to make a heart from one hundred grams of clay. I recorded the hands of each participant as they modelled their heart, and collected a relic of the moment. Finally, I asked them what they considered to be the most important aspect of friendship. The sound-track to the video contains the replies in Morse code.

 

In the order of preference here are some of the answers:

 

Loyalty             Fidelity                 Sincerity

 

        Honesty          To be there          Trust

 

Generosity       Sharing             Constancy  

 

  Complicity    To be oneself   Permanence

 

       To meet again      Tolerance     Respect

 

  Acceptance           Understanding

 

          The ability to make one another laugh

 

   Comfort                     To be at ease
