Срез времени / Slice of time 


In 2020, I started collecting neologisms. New words, phrases, and their actualized meanings are the best slice of recent time, accurately reflecting changes, challenges, and public sentiment. I sent telegrams with these words to everyone interested. Why this format? In telegrams, the most important things are written usually. Extraction of information, nothing superfluous, plus literal documentation (date/stamp).

This is something rudimentary, outgoing, unsafe in terms of conveying information, I like the contrast of this form with the most relevant content, literally. These telegrams are a document of the time. If desired, the recipient can do anything with it. Burn and scatter in the wind, tear, cross out, write your own words. You can do nothing — save and collect the collection, replenishing it every year.

This is a long term project.
