Morse Code

Morse code or radiotelegraphy is a way of transmitting messages as a series of on-off clicks, tones, or lights. The International Morse code alphabet represents each letter or character by a unique sequence of dots and dashes. During World War II, the use of this code was vital. For ‘Seeing Is Believing’, the use of the Morse code alphabet reminds us that seeing or reading a sentence requires not only a visual approach, but also a mental and emotional one. The drawn messages also situate themselves as sound pieces through pulses and clicks.

From a quote by Albert Einstein, I selected two fragments: A human being is part of a whole, and widening our circles of compassion.

Albert Einstein: "A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ —a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
