A work commissioned by curator Greg Elgstrand for the 2009 Nuit Blanche art festival in Toronto. 16 performers stood in a circle in a downtown park, wearing glow-in-the-dark gradeschool-style ghost costumes, incanting dead, disused and disfavoured slang words to the backing track of a looped sample from the OMD song 'Dazzle Ships'.
