Signs & Symbols mail art project

Here is the call for works which we passed around: "Please send compositions of symbols on paper or cardboard for this project. You can draw them or paint them by hand, or include computer-generated symbols or other techniques. Size: preferably ordinary writing paper (A4 or letter) or postcard. But can be larger or smaller, if you like. Some possible influences: prehistoric rock paintings, Lettriste hypergraphies, asemic writing, Egyptian & Mayan hieroglyphs, alien glyphs, Chinese seal script, wingdings fonts, visual poetry. You might find free fonts from places such as Omniglot.com useful. All entries which contain signs & symbols will be exhibited at the General Store Community Arts Centre, in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia for the month of October 2013. PDF documentation will be sent to all participants who provide an email address. We can't afford to return your artwork. closing date: 1st September 2013 address: signs & symbols project P O Box 1011 Kent Town SA 5071 Australia thank you!
