Visual Communication and Creating a Visual Language

Teaching a friend this technique with standardized movable imagery (above), 
and the results of my own demonstration work (below) made for my printmaking class this semester.

All the blocks were cut to a 3" standard.  Most of them are 3" square, while some are 3" x 6" or 1.5" x 3".  The goal is to mimic movable type so that a visual language can be created throughout the semester.  It breaks the project into smaller pieces, allowing for less restrictived expression by each student, and also opening a discussion about the inherent communication in visual culture.
