Every utterance is a creative act, an act of creation. It is open, how and what we say. It can be a song, a songline or Song of Songs.

SONGLINES are a project that poses language as a question. If the limits of one’s language are the limits of one’s world, then it is essential to reflect on language. SONGLINES are a project that is asking, not what language is it, but what it could be. SONGLINES are opening the possible dimensions of language. They explore the kinds of language and forms of writing we have to feel, before we understand them. In which through empathy, our sensitivity develops and opens up a more complex thought and communication. SONGLINES are the cybernetics of language. Every SONGLINE is a meeting of a body and a word. Every SONGLINE is created live, from this meeting. Each SONGLINE is composed according to the principles of the diagram of the tree of life. And every SONGLINE is part of the book that is being written, the book of life.
