Thesaurus Word Loops is an a5 photocopies booklet that was produced in two editions (2006 and 2012) neither of which was limited. The work was also featured as a project in Circa Magazine.
Each of the word loops featured in the booklet takes a pair of words with opposite meanings as its starting point. A thesaurus was used to find a synonym for one of these words and then to find a synonym for that synonym and so on. Each new word suggested by thesaurus involves a slight slippage of meaning. These slippages accumulate resulting in a complete inversion of the original meaning. This process is repeated using the second word from the pair until the loop has been completed.
