Pun of words and colors

My research is based in linguistics and in the symbolic systems of colour.
I use a specific colour for each sentence I write. In the sentence I choose certain letters that I colour with a different hue and that together create a word(s).
The hue is selected to add meaning to this word(s) within the context of the over all sentence.
My goal is to place the viewer in front of ordinary speech that contents both an intellectual and visual sub-structure. This direction was inspired by the writings
of the linguist Wittgenstein. He drew the attention of philosophers to the multi-dimensions of the "non-linguistics" of language.
The signification of words reveals a social context and a specific way of life. Each word has its own story and certain ambiguity in relation to fashion, social behavior and established cultural symbols.
