So I created a system that exposes "untranslatable" terms in certain languages because I wanted to explore the unique way some people express themselves within their language. This way, people curious about languages can be introduced to another life perspective and encourage a new connection not only with themselves but also with people from other cultures. The system consists of purchasable kits for an introspective moment on the language, posters around the city for an unexpected learning moment, and an Instagram page for easier digital distribution.
