Irrational Turn


The Irrational Turn is a video series based on a term coined by Bruno Latour in Science in Action. It indicates the moment were two different mode of human communications or organization collide against each other and the cultural answer that ensue, for instance between a mapping system of Westerners and Natives, become thus irrational and invalid.
Here multiple languages coexist simultaneously, signs, data and myths and romantic poetry are forced into one another; a confrontation of vocabularies – iconographic or scripted – as an act of violence.
