Djiza was created from strokes of traditional Chinese, abjads of the middle east, cuneiform of Mesopotamia and ideograms of Ancient Egypt. The combination of these languages recreates the imaginary alphabet of Babel - letters we all can recognize but can't quite identify.
Rooted in the idea of a mother tongue that has been lost, this alphabet is pulled from an imagined culture before the metaphorical tower of babel. All speech was equal. All speech was unified. All speech was mutually comprehensible.
Returning to babel allows us a pure look at our communication. By recreating the root of all languages, the alphabet and its epithets celebrate the unimaginable power of languages.
All designs are made with linguistic concepts.
