Onomatopoeia_the processes and clues

"Man is so necessarily mad that not to be mad would amount to another form of madness." - Pascal.

Is art one of the forms that can contain people's madness since they cannot find relief in their reality? If it is, what does my madness look like?

I define an ingredient as a word; therefore, the dish I cooked becomes a sentence. The sculpture I made is the written words that randomly pair up with one ingredient. The babbling voices from my niece become the pronunciation of this little "language." I named the combination "Onomatopoeia" since it is not a language after all - almost nobody will speak in it, use it, or write with it—a language based on civilization. Onomatopoeia is only based on the experience of being grafted onto an unfamiliar social milieu. Is this mixed-media installation a container for my indescribable feeling of cultural alienation? Why I chose those elements to compose the Onomatopoeia? Is all creativity an irrational voyage? How do you divide the line between rational and irrational?
