Marks from a Lost Language

‘The shapes on the button badges are from a series of experimental work I did exploring the shape of language/s. These four badges as a set are titled “Marks from a Lost Language”, a variety of geometric shapes were printed on acetate, sliced up, folded and bent and then photographed from several angles on a light box to create the new “marks”.’
