This workshop was finalised in a documentary video recording of the exercise. The workshop was conceived of basic interaction between the interviewer and the participants, where the participants had a duct tape over their mouths while answering a series of questions. The questions have been asked in English, the participants were familiar with the language, but due to the tape they were unable to give their expressions or fulfil the task in a desired manner.

This act simulated the impossibility to adequately express oneself in a foreign language.
