Future Dictionary

2018-Present

Future Dictionary is a project that looks at the growth and evolution of language and texts. It exists as a collection of living sculptures and photographs as well as an ongoing writing project with our son, in which we build new words for imagined and unnamed phenomena.

See excerpts from our dictionary below.
