Unspeak literally beamed into your eyes

Unspeak now exists as an “interactive documentary” made in collaboration with SubmarineChannel. There are six video episodes written and narrated by me, each with a different director, plus some cool data-visualization toys. It has been nominated for a 2013 Prix Europa award.

Meanwhile more observations on language, in Unspeak and other modes, will henceforth be found in a semi-regular slot at the Guardian, eg most recently the Unspeak of privatization, and Steven Pinker’s trouble with “scientism”. Thanks for reading!

    Your piece about Pinker is apposite as ever, but you’ve got the negation of his definition of scientism wrong: it’s that we can never understand anything about the world, or that acquiring knowledge is easy. Look up De Morgan’s laws.
