Nic Wilson
Umbrella Projects
Creative Writing

Named after the menu item that allows you to train your computer to acknowledge certain words, the book uses a collection of unrecognized terms from the artist’s writings as a springboard for a larger investigation into how a living language evolves. Examples in the book, which include queer slang, loan words, Indigenous place and nation names, Arab and Japanese names, as well as terms specific to art theory, reveal a Eurocentric bias in Word Processing applications. They also double as an inadvertent diary of the artist’s writing.
