Three years after moving to Germany, I am more or less fluent, but there is a lingering friction in my interactions. I feel a dissonance between what I want to express and the words that come out of my mouth. I wonder if I am being too abrupt, too formal or perhaps too informal. I have come to understand the usefulness of eye contact, smiling, and gesturing with my hands. I found myself inventing my own language. It's not a language of words, but of experience translated into shapes. To find the shapes for my language I consulted the photographs and drawings I have made since I moved to Europe, this archive of things I have noticed. The works are inspired by signal flags, which are used to send signals at a distance, mostly at sea. Like signal flags, these works use simple combinations of colours and shapes to communicate complex information and messages. They are the flags for my days and months of settling into life in Europe. They are flags as journal entries, flags that I am waving, flags that say: I am listening, I am trying to be understood, I wish to communicate with you.
