 Recording, Ind

 Following researching Bruce Nauman as advised by YLF, I decided to do some recordings of both me doing some performances and also working. Trying to understand how I think thru things.this ended up been a part enjoyable but also frustrating. When recording the word/ spoken content the recorder transcribed a lot of what I was saying as profanities when it was not and some where gibberish, non sensible words. I found it hard to correct as I was just things I would say that popped up in my head and I could not remember most of what I said. I wanted to say things and not think too much about what I  was saying. Looking into my deeper self. I found the actual process was freeing in a way as I was not so hung up on making anyone understand what I’m saying. This has been the most frustrating bit about English been a second language, I always found myself having to explain what I mean in England.  I understand how language can be a barrier to anyone more so when you don’t understand nor speak the language. That makes me think how hard it must have been for Saartjie who had no formal education and had to teach herself 2 new languages! Yes its true that some people have the aptitude to pick up languages quite easily but in the timespan she was here she could not possible have been fluent.
  posting short videos of me making is what I plan to do next with the hope of seeing where I can take this.
