Language breaks; words separate; meanings peel away and names abandon their objects. The “Ifs of Language” collects the shattered parts of our language, and gives them another possible meaning by re-making them into images. So that even while despairing at the brittle nature of our lines of communication, we can hope that meaning, still is, out there, somewhere. A synergy of film, music, sound, photography and text.
