WORLD GRAMMAR, AN OBJECTIONARY

(Book editorial project, planetary project, 2004 – , collaboration with Ricardo Almendros and Manuel Torres)

World Grammar is an objectionary, that is to say, a global dictionary of objects. The cultural differencees between countries and cities in the world are often shown through their languages, gastronomies, musics or ways of dressing. Thus the large imaginary of everyday-life objects that accompanies our lives seems to be consigned to a background, almost anecdotal, level.

World Grammar salvages these peculiar, ingenious, useful objects and gives them notoriety. By isolating these objects from their context and ordering them under unifying criteria, the cultural differences amongst the societies to which they belong start to emerge.


This project has been conceived as an open collaboration with multiple agents from different corners of the planet who discover, during their travelling, the cultural specificities of other locations.
