The poet

A new language


he Poet is a dry-ice speech-bubble machine that reads the poem The Planet O into speech bubbles that form a new visual language and was inspired by the essay

Captive Words, Preface to a Situationist Dictionary (1966) by Mustapha Khayati,

who called for a new language. 'Every critique of the old world has been made in the language of that world, yet directed against it and therefore automatically in a different language. Every revolutionary theory has had to invent its own terms, to destroy the dominant sense of other terms and establish new meanings in the “world of meanings” corresponding to the new embryonic reality needing to be liberated from the dominant trash heap.'
