About the Weekly Concordance

At the threshold of the exhibition is a concordance.  By its definition, a concordance is an alphabetical arrangement of the principal words of a book with reference to the passage in which each word occurs.  A concordance is also an agreement, harmony.

The printed concordance, stacked on the first table in the Pulitzer’s entrance gallery, draws on an older definition of the word concordance: a composition combining and harmonizing various accounts.

The words that comprise the two vertical spines of the composition serve as principal words describing the interior register of the space of the Pulitzer as stylus inhabits it. 

In the concordance, published weekly, horizontal lines of text which contain the selected “spine words” are lifted from international English language newspapers.  The selected lines are thus pulled from their original context in the newspaper and arranged according to the alphabetized list of principal words. Through this process, the composition intersects the interior structure of stylus with the exterior world of events.
