For this work done with artist John Yoyogi Fortes, who had his solo show, "Kit pa ça file Bayou!" (A play on 'Don't let it get/pass by you') at Jen Tough Gallery, then in Benicia, CA. He asked me to do Kouri-vini (Louisiana Creole language) translations and then record my voice so that people who visit his show learn what the language sounds like. He also invited me to show my painting, Une Journée Calme au Lac Peigneur (A Calm Day at Lake Peigneur).
