Language Möbius is about my speaking process. The loop in my brain goes like this: hearing English, thinking in Korean, translating, then speaking in English. Language Möbius can be cut in half through the center twice. With each cut the sentences of the layers are cut in half, making them illegible. The final two rings lined together symbolize the two languages tangled up in my head while in translation, which is why the sentences can’t be read.
