45 Symbols

45 symbols is a collaborative exploration of visual language that unites students, teachers, scholars, and ideas from 6 cities across 4 continents. Falmouth university was part of this project. These set of symbols are based upon the traditional and cherished welsh craft of lovespoons. A lovespoon is a traditional welsh craft, a wooden spoon carved that a woman would receive from her suitor as a symbol of love. Each symbol is unique and corresponds to a welsh male name. This work has been exhibited in the 45 symbols exhibition in Cologne, Germany, and published in the '45 symbols' book, visit online here
