While studying at the Pforzheim Huch Schule in Germany I experienced many mistranslations both in observed and in personal conversations.  In the moment these mistakes were seemingly innocent, but upon reflection they became evidently political. By taking these mistranslations out of their spoken context and into a visual one their political residue becomes ever more apparent.
