ACTION: COIN A WORD
100 Days Action is thrilled to host the Field Office Station of The Bureau of Linguistical Reality at Southern Exposure Gallery. Sit down for one-on-one conversations about the feelings and experiences we are having in this shifting landscape and to coin new terms for these nuanced feelings.
The Bureau of Linguistical Reality is a public participatory artwork by Alicia Escott and Heidi Quante focused on creating new language as an innovative way to better understand our rapidly changing world due to manmade climate change and other Anthropocenic events. Asking the questions of who has the agency to define the world around us— and the words we use to talk about it, The Bureau creates a platform for people to identify feelings and experiences they do not have the language to describe and together coin neologisms to better discuss these.Want to hear about more events and updates?
