Tongue twister

The artwork is dedicated to Russian tongue twister as a unique phenomenon in the culture of language. The famous tongue twister written in the artwork says: "На дворе трава, на траве дрова, не руби дрова на траве двора" (meaning "There is a grass in the yard, there is a firewood in the grass, don't chop the firewood on the grass of the yard." The tongue twister is pronounced as "Na dvore trava, na trave drova, ne rubi drova na trave dvora"). The tongue twister is repeated several times because we can't spell the tongue twister at a first attempt without any interruption. The center of the artwork is distortion which symbolizes the interruption when we get tongue-tied and spelling is distorted. The artwork which is based on Old Slavonic letterforms emphasizes its cultural identity.
