Dictionary of Isolation
Dictionary is a database. Everybody pulls hundreds of words out of it every day to communicate. But what we communicate to others and subsequently what words we use depends on who we are, how we feel, and what situation we are currently in.
Inspired by documentaries on British detention centres as well as being cut off from most of the human interaction due to pandemic
I decided to create a dictionary of isolation containing only words associated with it. I wanted to convey the feeling of being isolated by leaving the structure of a dictionary intact but depriving the reader of any words that aren’t isolation-related.
