Semear (in progress)

Participatory project, dimension variable, 2018

What makes a word real? Who has the power to decide? Is a word real only when a lexicographer compiles it into the dictionary? In project Semear, nearly 100 participants from Lisbon are invited to join an experiment for 21 days. During the time span, they are required to use a fake word in Portuguese "climiçoso," a word invented by me. For at least one time per day, with other Portuguese speakers.
