h e a v e n :: h i m m e l playfully engages with the potentialities of letting communication fail. By derailing the communicative act, h e a v e n :: h i m m e l explores the incomprehensible and its ability to generate new meaning. Grounded in open-ended play akin to the dynamics of Chinese whispers and sign language, it allows for the emergence of meaning that isn’t informed by comprehension. The installation is perforated by 'blind spots' that facilitate ruptures and fissures in perception.
