Is language a virus?

UK/2020

Did you say virus?

Language mutates as our society evolves. Our communities shape our ways of communication and affect the value of words that we see and use daily.

The misuse of language, influenced by a lack of knowledge and experience creates an opposition rather than a connection. Untempered, this exploitation can lead to total disconnection between two or more individuals. My work focuses on the value of language and its accessibility.

Navigating around the nature of words, my work underlines how we are related to words and how we affect them. By exploring the way words are used and abused daily we are able to separate and deconstruct the meaning of expressions, phrases and language.

What’s the relationship between social change and linguistic change?
