The Word Exchange 2017

The Word Exchange is a project that invites participants to explore the process of learning words and language through translation, pronunciation and exchange. The project makes reference to the origin, design and function of language dictionaries.

A fundamental aspect to this project and all language dictionaries are the relationships between memory and record, knowledge and uncertainty, presence and absence, past and present and the relationship between different people and different places. Language dictionaries are for all these things and for all people including for those who the language may belong to.
