Tout les Mots
Tout les Mots, is a play on the French expression tout le monde, which in its literal form translates as all the people in the world. By interjecting the French word for words – mots – it creates a double entendre in the spirit of Dada and Surrealist word play. The title thus encapsulates the essence of this series in that every word uttered by the nearly 3,000 participants is represented in one of the prints corresponding to each of the thirteen words. This is done to give voice to every individual who engaged in the WORDS project. The various responses were scaled to reflect the frequency in which they were articulated.
