The Bureau of Linguistical Reality was established on October 28, 2014 for the purpose of creating a new vocabulary for the Anthropocene.
Our species (Homo Sapien) is experiencing a collective “loss of words” as our diverse lexicons fail to represent the emotions and experiences we are undergoing as our habitat (earth) rapidly changes due to climate change and other unprecedented events. To this end, the The Bureau of Linguistical Reality is solemnly tasked with generating linguistic tools to express these changes at the personal and collective level.
Cartographers are redrawing maps to accommodate rising seas, psychologists are counciling people on climate change related emotions, scientists are defining this as a new age or epoch. The Bureau was thus established as an interactive artwork to help fill the linguistical void in our rapidly changing world.
