alien tongues

If we received a message from an alien civilization, would we know how to read it? The 6000 odd human languages have universal syntactic structure, defining a space of possible languages. This collection imagines texts written in alien tongues where syntax is geometrical. Each image represents a distinct, syntactically meaningful alien language, encoded into a single hash key.

edition of 50.

each 3-character tag uniquely specifies an alien tongue.

Other collections by EDG:
