"DELETE" (2014)

I have created a a language to delete. 210 graphemes that don´t carry meaning by themselves. One grapheme is not an "A" or a "B" but anything that we want: Ex. 3GB of philosophical texts, 20MB graphics or nothing. The idea is to purge language with no-language, a maintenance-language. To create a language to delete: Delete the language between humans or between machines, hard drives, the memories, the alphabetic convention, textual noise, the "junk" operating systems, the satellite data, the identity on-line, the identity-off-line, the algorithmic remains on the hard drives that are not going with hammers.
