Semi-Semiotic Map (Performative research, Nunnery Gallery 2016) Visitors to Nunnery Gallery were asked to hold an elastic band any way they wanted, and photographed, an investigation of the complexity of something seemingly simple. The resulting 200+ images were arranged in a semi-semiotic arrangement, where shape starts to look like language.
