Yes, the title of this project is . It is set in a fictional timeline, with young extraterrestrial creatures who do not speak English or any human language on a visit to St. Pancras station. Upon seeing Tracey Emin’s neon sculpture, ‘I want my time with you’, the aliens sense the language-like patterns in such vivid colour in the centre of the station must be something significant. They trace out the outline of a sentence and get a result that resembles asemic writing. Bringing this back to their planet, they show it to more mature aliens who know some human languages. After exhaustively checking the dictionaries, the mature aliens translate the asemic writing as meaning ‘Zoot Path ih7’, a much less emotional and more cryptic message than the original Tracey Emin text. Till now, the aliens are still trying to figure out what ‘Zoot Path ih7’ means to human beings!
