No Entiendo Nada

During a series of trips to Colombia, artists David Jimison and Eric John Olson laid the foundation for a collaborative art practice exploring mistranslation. The practice included conducting interviews in which they did not fully understand the interviewee’s responses but continued based on assumptions; illustrations of specific incidences, including being mugged and misunderstanding the directives from the muggers. The artist team created rituals in response to their assumptions about the esoteric nature of found objects and chance encounters. This video is one iteration in a series of responses to their writings and documenation.
