The Words Beyond Grammar exhibition where the Together Forever work is situated "began as a response to Boris Groys’s essay of the same title which explores how the internet, and in particular Google, are philosophical machines through which we struggle to gain access to the truth. Google changes the way we ask questions of and interact with the world – transforming our relationship to truth, translation, and the body" (Bushby & Finch 2016). This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

In his essay–Words Beyond Grammar, Groys proposes that the liberation of individual words online is causing the difference between affirmative and critical positions to be increasingly irrelevant. I explore this concept by reflecting on the weirding of our narratives as a result of our online behaviour and the creation of audience driven content. This work was exhibited in the form of electronic media and an online chat service.

This exhibition featured artworks by Sheridan Coleman, Karen Ann Donnachie and Andy Simionato, Alex Griffin, Kirsty Jade, Rebecca Jensen, Loren and David Kronemyer, Danni McGrath, M-O Sayaka Ohata and Joseph Mayrhofer-Ohata, Brontë Jones, Steven Tapping, Alex Tate.
