The Four-Letter-Word projects are writing. Since they do not exemplify the traditional sense of the word, the term writing must be then redefined. Kress mentions that language “demand[s] . . . commitment to naming a relation and commitment to a location in space in another.” (Kress) In other words, language requires two things: relationships and space. Writing, in itself, is a language that has these requirements. Certain words and letters have to be placed in a specific order in order for arguments and ideas to be expressed clearly. As such, the Four-Letter-Word-Projects rely on the relationship and placement of images to convey arguments and ideas effectively. In this manner, they are a subset of the writing language; as such, they are writing.
