Windows | MIRUNCOLA – Words that do not exist

David Reimondo

Windows | MIRUNCOLA – Words that do not exist is the first exhibition project of the Windows series, that can be observed by one of the windows of Mazzoleni Turin, in Via Cernaia, 1.

For this occasion David Reimondo (Genoa, 1973) once again explores the theme of language, the cornerstone of all his researches, and proposes works from the series “Words that do not exist”: a computer calculates and displays in real time all the possible combinations between the 26 letters of the Latin alphabet, reaching a maximum of 26 consecutive letters.
The artist subsequently excludes all the existing words used by the languages ​​that use the Latin alphabet and assigns to a robot the task of writing those possible “words” that have never been used and therefore await a meaning that only man can attribute.
Reimondo has created a series of books, divided by initial letter as in an encyclopedia, in which all the possible combinations calculated by the computer are gathered (6402364363415443600995503674052849007 words).
