Description

Based on ten years of personal writing, ‘Every word I know’ acts as a linguistic portrait of an individual. Each word is recorded only once and published alphabetically, effectively removing all context. What is left is an empty framework, the words used but in what order, and which story they tell, both unknown. The work serves to document the way that the individual utilizes language, and the dependence and importance of language in communicating about one’s experience.

Edition of 75, signed and numbered.
