These videos are experiments whilst learning French. Two exercises were taken to be deconstructed: the first one reading old French texts in order to articulate and the second to repeat out loud what is being written. The exercices didn't change although, one element was added during their performance: drinking one glass of whiskey (40% volume of alcohol) each time they were completed. This is a process to become incomprehensible and unarticulated.
