Words are the building blocks of human communication. We use them to express our thoughts and feelings and describe the world that surrounds us. They are living organisms whose meaning may evolve and change, shaping the contexts in which they are used.
The “Neighborwords” project highlights how geographical locations may color the meaning of a given term.
This is an ongoing project which investigates site-specific meanings of words in a variety of places, cities and locations. The lettering on each card has been custom designed, carved and hand-printed on Old Mill Fedrigoni paper.
