Last Whispers | Lena Herzog

Role: Oversaw immersive video production

At an unprecedented speed, faster than the extinction of most endangered species, we are losing our linguistic diversity—and the very means by which we know ourselves.

Last Whispers is an immersive oratorio, an invocation of the languages that have gone extinct and an incantation of those that are endangered.
