Watch this on your iPod - Vodcast available here
Can two languages be interfused into one orthographic system? Could a text be designed so that two people of different languages can read it and both understand it? Soheil Ashrafi is a COFA Design Masters student whose research explores these questions. His research project looks at the politics of language and how language shapes our understanding of the world.
This talk was recorded live at COFA on August 11, 2011 as part of the COFA Design Festival 2011.
