As one of the earliest forms of long-distance communication, Morse Code was never intended to be visual. More so a simple system of dots and dashes, dahs and dits, memorised and communicated through on and off electrical pulses. Its visual simplicity is remarkable yet well-nigh forgotten.
This poster designed by Ryan Dixon is the first part of a new explorative project, where each letter has been assigned a unique color creating a visually intriguing series of bold shapes and patterns.
The poster reads: If the presence of electricity can be made visible in any part of the circuit, I see no reason why intelligence may not be transmitted instantaneously by electricity. —Samuel Morse
This is beautiful and reminds me of ASCII art. Life is Code. Code is Life. All is Art.
