What are the essential tools we use to show we exist and connect with others? How do the tools we use to communicate relay information and memory? Over centuries, the physical and mental process of writing has been used to form our thoughts into symbols. The marks we make carry meaning and become markers of our identity. These varied marks or characters we put to page speak directly to the mind without sound. We transfer meaning to lines, we recognize the shapes, and allow the composition to unravel meaning into the inscriptions. Invented writing systems pass on a thread of ideas, and somewhere in the space between the marks we feel the motion of the hand as it creates the journey over the page. Kate investigates the importance of how communication plays a larger part in understanding the human condition.
