mark my words
A mark can be many things.
A circle might mean completeness. Or nothing – zero. Maybe it's a letter in an alphabet. Or the eighth element in the Periodic Table. If it's in ink it's probably trying to tell us something. Paint it and maybe it's art. So here's a thing: the mark tells the story but the story defines the mark. Tales of science and fiction and everything in between are made by marks and make their marks.
And the thing the mark is made on has something to say. Carved in stone or scribbled on the back of an envelope. Conceal and reveal some or all of it and the story grows more enticing.
So. I use the shapes of numbers, letters and words and codes and symbols. For me the fascination is in the tension they create. For some people, they can have precisely defined meanings - an upper-case sigma adds up to a lot for mathematicians. But for other folk the same mark is just about meaningless. Add to this the capacity words have to be loaded with ambiguity and the fun starts.
