What is the difference between words and pictures? 

Traditional Chinese functions on pictorial combinations. Each character is pieced together with drawings, the lines of which became brushstrokes, and characters are combined to create words. To place emphasis on the pictorial qualities of the language, 15 words (selected for total variety in color and shape) were translated back into images. The results are magnets that allow for reinterpretation of a foreign language through play.
