I WONDER IF YOU KNOW I AM ABOUT TO LAND

Guillermo explains to Georgia:
I am starting to imagine it as if it were a room somewhere
and then we are never together inside that room
and we take turns to go in
and continue building something.

I WONDER IF YOU CAN TELL I AM ABOUT TO LAND is a movie created through a series of long distance video exchanges. The process began in September 2011 when Georgia, an American artist based in Chicago and Guillermo, a Mexican artist based in Mexico City, established an experimental structure for communicating.

The process started with a photo that Guillermo sent to Georgia. With this Georgia had a week to create a translation which was then sent to Guillermo for a subsequent translation. He in turn translated what he had received and this exchange went on weekly with the two having minimal to no communication other than the exchanged material. Now four years later, with Georgia living in New York and Guillermo in Berlin, the process continues

The project both experiments with the concept of translation and its boundaries as well as the context of ever- shifting contemporary ways of communicating via the internet and social networks. In these modes of communication images, video and sound become as important as traditional text. I WONDER IF YOU CAN TELL I AM ABOUT TO LAND not only documents the exchanged translations but also functions like a wordless conversation revealing the very specific non-linguistic language that has developed between the two artists over the years.
