Language builds you

by renegrelly

Our language is present in almost every moment in our lives. Even if we're not talking or writing, we use it in our thoughts, in our dreams. As cultural expressions, languages change: we help to build our language everytime we use it. At the same time, the language we use "builds" us, depending on the words we choose, the feelings we get to express, or the ideas we do not get to explain.
This poster express this cyclical relation by means of a little "man" whose speech becomes the head of another man, and so on, linking all of them. The different tones of gray represent diversity in human kind and languages. Even if there are many different languages, we can communicate and interchange experiences.
This poster aims to express that diversity is richness, not an obstacle.
