* notes & thoughts

Klama is a video work I made 2005. It was an attempt to think about myself from different perspectives simultaneously, a try to blur my position as either object and subject. Klama is also the Lojban word for coming and going, it doesn't specify from which perspective the movement is defined. It is possible to talk about the movement without thinking in terms of object and subject. A year later I saw the film Muhheakantuck by Matthew Buckingham at a seminar. In the film he discusses the word "the" and its implications on the power to capitalize things like land and air. The word that makes it possible to talk about things in themselves, whether in the native Americans Lenape language, the word the doesn't exist. When speaking Lenape one always reveals ones relation to what one talk about. Lojban is a language developed to make humans communication with computers more intuitive.
