Silent Symbols

Final Year Uni Project: Critical Research + Practice

The meaning of a sign comes only from its relationship to other signs in a system. This principle is the basis of structuralism, which focuses on patterns or structures that generate meaning rather than on the content of a given code or custom. This publication is based on a rubik's cube and is a metaphor for language. It conveys the idea of language as a communicative code which is manipulated by us (the addresser) in combinations, in order to get a message across.
