#WhenWordsFail

#WhenWordsFail

It is easy to believe that words are the pinnacle of human expression. Yet, art, song, dance, gesture, ritual, sport, stillness, violence, letting go, and so on, can invite and allow for expressions that are less filtered and more open than words typically are. #WhenWordsFail is a WebXR experience that creates space for the nonverbal expression of feelings bubbling just below the surface. Words are often inadequate to express the depth and often invisible impact of our experiences. What happens when words are not enough? How do you express yourself? How is meaning made and understood?
