Via Telfair:

The exhibit consists of 19 stainless-steel orbs, each composed of die-cut letters and symbols from nine languages, which suspend from the ceiling to form biomorphic clouds. The letters are arranged in a nonsensical order, referring to the breakdown of cross-cultural communication, and the physical separation between sculptures implies the disconnection that ensues.
