Sign of Nature

Jean-Benoît Lévy

Created in 2020 in the midst of a global virus paralysis, this poster expresses the freedom and the chaos of the nature in conflict with the human attempts to create arbitrary system to defend the existence of its own species. The poster uses graphically simple marks given by the nature opposed to abstract systems created by humans. In any case, the shapes found in any human alphabets and signs systems contain the same DNA found in nature, which is straight lines, movements, and organic curves.
