Forming Words participating artist: Jan Downes

I am particually interested in communication and some of the means of communication which are being replaced by new technologies.

Letters and envelopes .
Sacred Scrolls

They explore the diversity of symbols which form some of the written scripts of languages around the world. I want to communicate an appreciation of the aesthetic qualities of the scripts and focus on the importance of their preservation, especially with globalisation of computer technology and the digitalisation of script.
