I CONDUCTED AN EXPERIMENT on the structure of the language group of one of my friend-groups where I audio-recorded five separate, consecutive instances of our spending time together. I then tried to organize the semantic content of our conversations, and ended up makine a new visual language to do so.

The language creates a priority structure and sequence based on simple geometric forms showing the patterns of tense, conjugation, relational, emotional, and sensory content in our communication. It was surprisingly revealing, for example, the tense frequency graphs showed when we were speaking with one another, we spoke most often in the current and past tenses and almost never in the future tense.
