Inspiration: Former Utterings performances and workshop + Zaum
Kruchenykh et Klebnikov originated Zaum, a language defying translation. Intriguingly the two had very different, even opposing, goals:
Kruchenykh stated that when creating Zaum, he decided to forgo grammar and syntax rules. He wanted to convey the disorder of life by introducing disorder into the language. <=> Chhlebnikov believed that the purpose of Zaum was to find the essential meaning of word roots in consonantal sounds. He believed such knowledge could help create a new universal language based on reason.

"some essential models of transmental language were proposed: in the first place ecstatic gIossolalia: Emotion cannot be compressed into coagulated words, concepts: the torments of the word are a gnosiological solitude. Hence the tension towards a transmental language, it is to this way of expressing himself that man has recourse in the most solemn moments."
Aleksej Krucenych, 1922 in "Zaumniki",
silence is beautiful
The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated codex hand-written in an otherwise unknown writing system, referred to as 'Voynichese'.
The manuscript has never been demonstrably deciphered, and none of the many hypotheses proposed over the last hundred years have been independently verified. The mystery of its meaning and origin has excited the popular imagination, making it the subject of study and speculation.
