the dictionary

I’m starting to question this whole dictionary idea having started school, mainly because I’m having too difficult of a time finding anyone who has done anything similar.  Am I looking in the wrong places? I don’t know, I’m hoping that I’ll find a whole community of strange neurotic linguists and English scholars with major OCD so I can bring them my version of “the dictionary” for them to all have a chuckle at. What I’m attempting to do is to take an artistic and process driven approach to  lexicography. ( I just learned this term.  the definition of this is; the writing, editing, or compiling of dictionaries.2. the principles and procedures involved in writing, editing, or compiling dictionaries.) So according to my previous entry in which I present my “formula” for the question; what is art? man’s interpretation x X = art. I am breaking down the first part of the equation “man’s interpretation”, as I am the artist I will analyze and classify my own interpretation and understanding, the most obvious way to go about this in my eyes to do this is to write a dictionary of my own words and thier meanings according to me from my own perspective.  I would imagine that it would be read as an index to my thought process.  Who knows, maybe I’ll come up with something mildly original.
