Our worlds revolve around communication. What happens when words simply cease to exist? Do the sentiments they express also vanish?

 

Inspired by the Orwellian dystopian language of Newspeak, with/out words explores the correlation between language and freedom of thought, personal identity, self-expression, and free will.
