Images from our Letters & Ligatures show at Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Gallery in November of 2008. This was our high-concept synopsis of the exhibit:
Visual nomenclature fuels language, facilitates communication and forms the basis of a civilized society. Without standardized lexigraphy, we could not create the essence of truth, allowing history to pass on the tongues of those who change it to suit their needs. Written language is also crucial to our cultural survival. It tells us when to stop, where to go, who to see and what to desire while providing the syntax of our earliest memories and our final thoughts. House Industries artists decided that if written symbols play such an important role in our physical, mental and social well being, they might as well look good.
