FFrom Lords debut solo exhibition, 'Social', exhibited at the Collective Haunt Inc. gallery, November 2019. The exhibited body of work is an observed documentation of the designed language, used by social media, which saturates our surrounding digital landscapes. The use of intentionally engineered written language in social media and the internet at large is an especially unique change in how we perceive and interact with written text. Whether we like it or not, these key pieces of language are significant elements in the everyday lives of today’s world and Lord feels this is important to capture. Of the many conceptual points in the work, the most significant is the global unification taking place as a result of designed language being used in such a common context. Social media companies have created products and experiences which function seamlessly across any selected translation and culture. Something that has never quite fully been captured before, even with the advent of the printed book. Lord hopes this work captures this unique moment of global human interaction and causes audiences to recognise the power of the written word.
