The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.

Broadcasting 'Vava Dudu'

Broadcasting 'Vava Dudu'

rile* is thrilled to present a conversation with Vava Dudu, Alberto García del Castillo and Geo Wyeth, hosted by Marnie Slater. The conversation centers around the publication of the first anthology of poetry by fashion designer, musician, painter, and Paris icon Vava Dudu. Vava’s poems are culled from language she prints and publishes on garments, as well as song lyrics from her electro-punk band La Chatte.

The publication brings together texts translated from French to English by New York artist, musician and educator Geo Wyeth, and edited by Castilian writer and curator Alberto García del Castillo. The book was completed in residency at the Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels (BOZAR), as part of the public program accompanying a retrospective exhibition of Keith Haring.

One can find a recording of the performance (mentioned in the broadcast) via this link: https://youtu.be/xA5b0z2ue5I

One can access the broadcast on https://radio.montezpress.com.

Vava Dudu (born August 2, 1970 in Paris) is a multidisciplinary French artist of Martinican origin. In 1998, she worked with Fabrice Lorrain after graduating from the Parisian fashion school Fleuri Delaporte. Marilyn Manson, Bjork, Neneh Cherry, Kate Moss, Lady Gaga and John Galliano are clients and the Galliera museum exhibits their models. With her group La Chatte, she performed in the program Des mots de minuit. She created the motifs and music for the Courrèges fashion show in 2019.
