a monument about something, you believe in.
The Bliss symbols are a language for non-speakers and for some the only way of communication of their thoughts. This is a living library. You can flip through all the 5588 symbols and every time you pause, you get to know another symbol and its translation. It is coded to create single pngs for all of the 5588 symbols and has then been animated in Adobe After effects.
Bliss symbols or Bliss Symbolics are a living language and used in more than 19 countries. For some it is their only way to communicate, as they have difficulties to communicate through the alphabet of sign language (especially when physically impaired), but a lot of people who might participate from it, don't know about it. This animation was created to give an overview abot this fascinating system, with which you can even "talk" in past and future tense and communicate more complex content than with the simple sign systems for non-speaker. It is made with the friendly support of BCI (Bliss Communication International) in Sweden, which organises the use of this language worldwide.
