The grievances that ‘words’ hold against us, ironically cannot be put down in mere words. They are the world’s most misunderstood entity. To fully comprehend the mechanisms and reasons for communication failures, Ruheel decided to document his interactions with misunderstood words. This exhibition features his conversations with the world’s words. Deliberate or unintentional; he explores how words have played their role at different times, instances and critical circumstances.
He examines situations where someone is trying to understand something but they are getting it incorrect or someone is pointing out something yet he is being misinterpreted. In other instances, where people are consciously trying to avoid confusions and instead they end up creating more. From simple misread jokes and honest misunderstandings to premeditated malicious word games, the transitional chaos that descends is a thing of wonder.
