Reprinted (1st edition) for rile*, Brussels, 6 June 2019. No Private Problems was an exhibition about six “historical figures”: Alejandra Pizarnik, Amy Winehouse, Christine Villemin, Joan of Arc, Monica Lewinsky, Sandra Bland. The text-based works in the show circled around the histories of these women – the official and the unofficial – using media, history, literature and psychoanalysis. It treated themes such as voice, law, morality, religion, dress, self-destruction and female illegibility. The custom typeface designed by Ella Sutherland and is based on Eleanor Weber’s handwriting. / series available at rile*

The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
