Accentful American Anthem

Julia W. Szagdaj - Poland

Accentful Manifesto


I’m an immigrant in the english language. I'm Accentful. And I have a dream of making space in the American Anthem for materiality of sounds, representations, patterns, ways of story-singing, and emotions. Treating language as a material I weave in linguistic puzzles and poetic irregularities.


In my work, I am imagining the world of Accentful instead of Accentless. In a symbolic form of an American Anthem I create a poetic protest. I try to bend the english language to celebrate the wonders of sounds that stretch jaws and minds.
