There is an embodied language that cannot be articulated in words nor whispered in the deepest, wildest thoughts. These are brief scribbles… Fragmented Scribbles captures moments of endless embodied conversations that occur in one’s body, mind and spirit. Captured in a kitchen, a space of creation firstly catalysed by the COVID-19 constraints, but now a stage for the showcasing of a constantly evolving embodied language.
