WORKBOOK actively employs mistranslation as a poetic form to re-interpret the pedagogical language of E.S.L (English as a Second Language). Using found imagery, text, and audio from various standardized tests, workbooks, and youtube tutorials, WORKBOOK attempts to unlearn and re-author the language used to disseminate the world's "common language" from a multilingual and interstitial space.
