Language is Not Transparent

First off, this naturally appealed to my sociologically framed mind. I’m interested in linguistics (What, no waaaaay melissa. you? I can’t believe it you NEVER talk about that!) and conceptual art tends to deal a lot with linguistics, for those of you non art history buffs/nerds. But I found this piece to be more so interesting because it cuts to the chase, while also leaving you to wonder at its seeming “transparency” in the straightforward message. The piece itself talks about the nature of wording in a seemingly obvious way, so what is that obviousness almost disguising?

#thinkinoffelix. sigh.
