i dream in your language is a series of short vignettes about language, communication, misunderstandings and the artist's envy of people's ability to speak multiple languages. Participants were asked what it is like to communicate with people who don't speak their native language and what languages they dream in. Each interview, subtitled in both English and the second language spoken, reveals the complex negotiations of translating and interpreting what's been said and what was meant.
