You shall know a word by the company it keeps' (John Rupert Firth)
we are excited to present Kevin D. Shabahang's work 'the company it keeps'
at arr.dalpofzs.com, online until 15.09.2018
you are invited to inhabit a virtual space populated by 2000 words selected from a corpus of english novels. the spatial position and color of the words are expressions of the relationships between them as revealed by the history of their usage (see Kevin's short description on the home page of the exhibition).
now on: the 2000 highest entropy words in our corpus... including words rarely used, unusual spellings, typos and other manifestations from the periphery of our vocabulary.
keep them company
