UNSPEAK

Based on British journalist Steven Poole’s intriguing book of the same name, Unspeak is a brand-new interactive documentary by Submarine Channel that looks at how language can smuggle persuasion into description.

Consisting of short films, an interactive data visualization, and a participatory dictionary, Unspeak critically and satirically reveals the unspoken messages and obscured meanings behind familiar media terms such as War on Terror, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Climate Change, File Sharing, Austerity Measures, Erectile Dysfunction, or the Dutch word Kopvoddentax.
