Words are vessels for conveying the intangible. We cannot open these vessels and pluck out their contents, and the vessels do not necessarily adequately convey that which is pre-verbal. The phenomenon of “indescribability” occurs everywhere and at all times, without speakers even noticing. The two artists decided to collaborate in order to explore forms that the “pre-verbal” takes before it is placed in a semantic vessel.
