Visual Semiotics

Visual semiotics is defined as a form of remediation carried through into a media space and used for different purposes . When looking at symbols such as road warning signs, a triangle shape is used to represent from a distance a potential ‘warning’.

“We are the semionauts on a road and the signs on the road side are things we are picking up and we are using them and re-interpreting them as we travel… ”

In experimenting with this idea of semionauts and shape representation, I went on to produce my own futuristic idea of a warning symbol . Below is my design produced in the workshop, my warning sign was designed to echo no ‘eye insta photography’, a futuristic idea based on our eyes being capable of taking photos.
