Conditional Arabic

How does a non-speaker of Arabic perceive its letters‭? ‬And can‮ ‬this illegibility perhaps yield interesting results‭?‬

In exploration of how Arabic can possibly be translated to‮ ‬make visual form‭, ‬this game explores this idea by intro­ducing simplified Arabic letters as shapes for participants to make their own design compositions‭. ‬The angular‭, ‬blue set originally spells‭ ‬“square‭,‬”‭ ‬while the rounded‭, ‬red set spells‭ ‬“circle‭.‬”‭ Participants are encouraged to create new words and forms out of the letters‭.‬
