The Cogs of Communication

A Brief History of Written Communication

The Cogs of Communication

Gouache, vellum, tracing paper, newspapers, and dictionary pages. © Allison Green 2012.

Paper quilt with symbols painted in gouache. The top layer (painted tracing paper) represents our initial form of written communication, symbology. Underneath this layer are dictionary pages, which display the next step, formal written language. The piece is then quilted with a wave stitch, showing our most recent development, wireless communication.

Shown in Context/Texture at the NBCCD Gallery in 2012.
