List of Physical Visualizations
and Related Artifacts

2018 – Spanish Dictionary Cemetery

  

1914-2014 consists of a comparison between the Spanish official Dictionary from the year 1914 and the one from 2014. The result of this comparison is a list of all the words which are not included in the last edition of the dictionary any longer. Every word is displayed on a single page in order to show the number of lost words physically.

This visualization is materialised in an artist book with the format of a dictionary divided in two volumes. The size of the book already shows us the amount of words which have disappeared from the Spanish Dictionary.
