Sophie Collins and Raimon Fransoy

Think about silence and all it implies. But think—now, quickly—about words and meaning. About words and meaning and metaphor. About words and deception. About how metaphor—or any kind of figurative language—might, in fact (and often inadvertently), lead to a kind deception. Think about how speech—as opposed to silence—might effect an inadvertent (self-)deception.
