"The revolution will be complete when the
language is perfect."
Syme from Nineteen Eighty-Four
Language, meaning and perception are violently utilised among other methods as the mode of oppression in the society described in the novel by Geroge Orwell, Ninteen Eighty-Four.
different textual characters are used in the novel, including alphabet, numbers
and symbols. A total of 53 colours representing the limited colour spectrum are
assigned to these characters without exception, rendering the text into colour without
the symbolic figure of the characters. Thus the meaning is hidden from the
immediate view – a language without meaning. After the colour replacement of the
text, the whole novel was produced back into a book.
