Coaching project - presentationHOOMAN SHARIFI
Who am I if the only job I do is translation? Translating from one language to another is actually practicing both of them. We improve the language for the language as well - its system and functions. But what if only in translation can we show ourselves? Let's meet in the room and keeping the balance expecting the downfall let's down close to the floor.
Let's say we have in our hands the war photos or any different pictures and we will "translate" to the motion, compositions, space, time, the concrete behaviour and actions. Not copying, not presenting but TRANSLATING.
Am I faithful to my original one? Aren't I faithful to it? If I am not sure if I am faithful or not will it be seen? What to do if the language is not defined? There are no dots only commas.
