*The Rules of the Game:*

Translation Games explores the theory and practice of translation within
literature, i.e. between languages, and in the fine arts, i.e. between art
genres and art practices. The project is modelled on the game of Chinese
Whispers, where a message is passed from person to person and goes through
various stages of transformation. Colleen Becker’s short story “What We
Made” served as the source text for both the literary and artistic
translations. The text was translated from one language into the next -
i.e. from English into French, from French into Italian, from Italian into
Spanish, etc. - and, in a parallel strand, from one art genre into the next
- i.e. from text to film, from film to ceramics, from ceramics to sound,
from sound to movement. The original text and the Spanish and Turkish
translations were translated into textile by a designer.

*Funded by: King's Cultural Institute and the **Department of German,
King’s College London*


*Come and see the results of the game, find out how “What We Made” became
“The only Thing about You That We Could Fathom”! If you feel like it, then
join in, contribute your own translation and win a book token!*
