”The Rest Is Silence” (completion) (2011)

”The Rest is Silence” is an experimental research project that explores the relationship between community and communication. During 10 days a group of 7 participants live in silence and engage in the task of building a wooden structure without a plan or blueprint. They can build and work together in whatever way they want as long as they do so without using language. A film team documents and depicts how the participants’ social relations change during their time in silence, and how they work together when communication is barred. This social experiment will result in a film and a publication.
