Languages evolve and this shifting tells us something about our changing world. The Future Dictionary of Water started when Wang invited friends and strangers to gaze into their crystal balls and consider what new words we will need to describe our future relationship to water. Words poured in and Wang selected a total of 27 to illustrate and include in the Dictionary. The collection describes a world full of possibilities – will our world be sensible and balanced, or will it be held back and unable to take flight? These words also reveal who we are and who we we hope to become.
