Lena Herzog’s “Last Whispers” is an immersive sound and video installation featuring extinct and endangered languages. A majority of the world population speaks around 30 of the 7,000 languages that exist today. Apparently, one language goes extinct every two weeks. Every two weeks!
Herzog’s multidisciplinary experience is a collaboration with award-winning sound designers Mark Mangini and Marco Capalbo and consists of 3D animation, video drone footage and stills, all in black and white, providing a stunning backdrop for sung and spoken words and the sounds of collapsing stars, gravitational waves and supernova.
