See What You Say.

A Journey to the back of our minds.

See What You Say is an illustrated audiobook. It investigates to what extent language influences the way we perceive ourselves and the world around us.

The book’s narrative is lead by a character represented by an eye and a mouth, as a visual metaphor of sight and speech.
Interrogating itself on the correlation between what it sees and what it says, the main character guides us throughout the journey of our daily language choices in the transition from a Pre-Verbal stage to a Verbal one.

By swapping the conventional perspective of thought influencing words, See What You Say aims to incite further discourse on the importance of pondering our language choices. It offers a visual interpretation of how and in what ways our language choices can influence our thoughts.

The terminologies featured in the illustration above refer to Intersecting Axes of Privilege, Domination and Oppression, a diagram adapted from Morgan, Pauly K. (1996) "Describing the Emperor's New Clothes: Three Myths of Education (In)Equality.”

This book is part of MA Graphic Branding & Identity Final Major Project at London College of Communication (October 2016-November 2017). The research this book responds to is featured in Can What We Say Influence What We Think?
