Whilst trying to design a device that could write words whilst destroying them simlultaneously, I instead created a device that aids those who suffer from the condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with the act of writing. Writer's Block./Writer's Black is formed from an English dictionary, burnedin the absence of air, to create charcoal, for making words made from words.


  Writer's Block./Writer's Black is both full of language and yet also mute. Writer's Block./Writer's Black has the potential to be verbose, yet until it is tapped, remains silent. Writer's Block./Writer's Black is latent speech in solid form.   Thank you to Neil Stevenson at Trelissick Garden for helping me turn my dictionaries into charcoal.
