Patrick Jenkins on the Sign Language series:
“The Series of drawings entitled the “Sign Language” were started in the fall of 1981 as working sketches for the film I was shooting of the same name.
Both the drawings and the film explore the area of non-verbal signs. The images were found and adopted warning signs, information images and graphic logos from commercial design.”
