All communication is a code whether it is language or shapes that we discern as letters and words or color for which we learn cultural associations. We may begin learning that code from birth or in the moment as we do with wayfinding systems. Nothing is truly universal.
Coded is based on our ability to continually create and learn a visual code. It is a wearable meditation, with an earthy appearance, created for women in their 30s and 40s who enjoy arts and crafts. Users build a bracelet with coded symbols. The unique combination creates a meaningful message for the user which she can add to or change at will. Whether it’s a reminder, memory, or meditation, the code and its meaning continue to evolve with its owner.
