"City of voices" is a project that explores the linguistic richness of modern Ireland. For centuries English and Gaelic were the main languages spoken in the country. Nowadays, over 180 languages are spoken on Irish soil and Dublin is the epicentre of this futuristic Babylon. The languages we speak shape who we are and the usage of words and sentences affects our thoughts, our personality. Although identities are forged in different ways, speaking more than a language can lead individuals to possess a second soul, to understand who they are.  Each voice, each story collected is a pure individual expression.

We may speak English at the free market bazaar but our moral choices and the trials of our daily existence - birth, death, worship, celebration - are locked up in our mother tongues.
