Visual identity and custom font for Compost, a dance performance by Aria Boumpaki.

Saussure, the Swiss linguist and semiotician, was the point of our reference, who believes that linguistic entities are parts of a system and are defined by their relations to one another within said system. The thinker used the game of chess for his analogy, citing that the game is not defined by the physical attributes of the chess pieces but the relation of each piece to the other pieces. In semiotics, a sign can be anything that communicates a meaning and this can happen deliberately, such as a word, or not deliberately, such as a symptom.

As Sol le Witt has mentioned, planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair.
