World Line

"Man is born naked; he has no nationality."

This sentence will be spoken in many different languages.
Mouths will be added untill I have all the national languages of the world. (For the countries that have several national languages, one only has been chosen to represent it.) This work in progress, presented first on Internet, will be the object of an installation.
Please make a short movie of your mouth (or of those of your friends) using your cellphone and send it on website@mariaclark.net, giving me the origin of the language spoken –
I can also see you to shoot the film.
List of the languages - see at the end of the page.

(double-click on each mouth to listen or stop it individually)
