Workshop with Juli Gudehus and Luisella Ströbele at icke,BERLIN

Icon spell – a global visual language

An idea thousands of years old has been on my mind for a long time: all early cultures (Egyptian hieroglyphics, Mayan signs, Scandinavian runes, etc.) knew how to communicate by lining up pictorial symbols. Recently, it has reappeared worldwide (emojis, Bliss Symbolics, LoCos etc). People of different cultures, ages and societies could – so I believe – realise a functioning visual world language together.

Design your own visual message and translate it onto a t-shirt!

Juli Gudehus

Comparing apples and oranges is my daily bread. I draw attention, create confusion, and design approaches.

I see and estab­lish connections between phenomenons, people, and things. I wonder and interpret, disassemble and combine, transform and invent, learn and teach. Language and everyday culture are rich sources for my various collections as well as for my work.

I love to make people smile as I find it makes them beautiful. More of what makes me happy are sparkling eyes, warm hearts, wit, courage, and colours.
