Stare at a word until the letters start to discorporate. You will find that letter cohesion, the letter glue that keeps letters stuck inside a word, is disrupted and dissolves. Fragments of letters will dislodge too. You are then free to visually interpret or document the life of letters outside their word existence as loosely or succinctly as possible.

languish language language languish land squish land switch
i immediately heard the word language. and i immediately heard the limitations in it.
i only know how to say thank you in seven languages. there is so much more to learn.
learn language. learn limits.
and our learning has limits and our length has breath. and this too is in the language of things.
