- Human history began with the innovation of writing. Applying symbols to surface provides the infrastructure towards lasting accurately transmitted thoughts, messages, and memories. While the recorded past of our forefathers has allowed culture to develop and evolve, it is with this success that contemporary life has become congested with informational messages.Encountering 5,000–20,000 informational messages per day the average American lives in a perpetual state of sensory overload, ill-effecting their space and time. These two elements are the foremost important factors we base our experience on. Each sadly has limited quantities for which an over abundance is inappropriately utilized, thus negatively impacting the human condition.This project sereved as a moment to deliver and celebrate somthing simple while reducing complex messages and the congested visual landscape.
