Did you know that words can die? It’s true. This stencil street art on the pavement in Venice Beach, in Los Angeles, is a virtual cemetery of words like “Cool,” “Art,” “Truth, and “Reality.” Each world has its own gravestone and years. Of course, most of these words are far from dead. But perhaps some more than others are on their way to dying sooner than later. The larger point is perhaps that the meaning of these words are in a state of flux or open to question in our current culture (e.g., “reality”), especially given the political rhetoric and circumstances of the Times.
