The work also references to the 1982 science fiction porn film Cafe Flesh where, in the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse, the majority of people have no sex drive, while a sex positive minority engages in acts of sexual theatre in front of fascinated audiences.

Understanding language as a constant practice of negotiating difference, Future Tongues approaches analogue communication technologies, like speech and touch. Intimacy – both pleasure and discomfort brought on by closeness – is preserved and exposed here like an extinct language or a relic of the past in this fast-developing digital culture.

What forms of embodied communication do we need today? Who has the right to speak their own language? Can we trust our collective intuition before we obey the authority of knowledge and power?
