We read human actions as signs that point to meanings and feelings
We follow signposts that direct us to where we want to go
We search for signs that predict an event in our future
We respect a sign that forbids us to do a certain thing
We ignore signs we don’t want to see
We react to signals
We make signs
A sign can be the action or the entity that points to the meaning, the presence or occurrence of something else.
By making sense of signs we shape our own reality.
How can I play with the idea of being between what is being pointed to and what is being understood?
During this residency I started researching how the physical body can express signs, distort space and interpret its own signs.
