Transposed Translations is an interactive site-specific recreation of a time and a space. As one enters Third Space they will be actively immersed into the process of creating individual paths in order to move through the artwork. As a whole, this installation is a direct translation of a previous performance. The process has been flooded with questions of boundaries and levels of translatability. Your interpretation can only offer new perspectives.
To retain the collective element in the source translation, during the installation, Tucker and Pineda invite you to bring books you would like to donate to collectively add to the construction. Leave and take, build and decode, from one origin to another elements are challenged as some rise and fall during their travels.
Emu Lehtinen of Digelius Music has contributed his own interpretations of the translation’s elements. His selection of artists such as John Cage, Terje Isungset, George Crumb, Mauricio Kagel and Franziska Baumann sound out the codes not only within the space, but simultaneously give reference to another time.
Transposed Translations is the sequel to Tucker and Pineda's performance, Transforming through Translation, at In Dialogue in Nottingham, UK on October 4, 2014. Tucker and Pineda had seventeen 1:1 performances via Skype with the participants in Nottingham. Tucker in Helsinki, Finland and Pineda in Bogotá, Colombia, entered a dialogue about sensing the environment with the participants. The gathered verbal and gestural descriptions became the basis for a new set of translations to be formed at Third Space in Helsinki. From one source to the target, the transformations continue.
These installations are phases of the reemerging art project Translation is Dialogue TID. The main purpose of TID is to create a space for participants to respond creatively to the artworks and to perpetuate dialogue on meaning generation based on translation theories.
