Universal Explanation of Nothing

How does one illustrate something that does not exist?

This publication explores the philosophical and complicated idea of nothingness. Inspired by the fact that without zero, modern technology would not exist, I created a fictitious language that is based on the binary notion (a method of mathematical expression that uses only two numbers: “0” and “1”) to explain nothing from a scientific point of view. My goal is to ironically comment on the inefficiency of Carl Sagan’s Golden Record, which went into space onboard Voyager in the 1970s.

The final result was a double bind a5 publication printed with a risograph. One side of the zine serves the purpose of the vocabulary, which is there to help you to decipher information on the black pages.

# The Creation of the Symbols

Symbols are created based on the binary translation of a specific word. “0” (zero) would stand for one circle, and “1” (one) would stand for one line in my drawing. For example, the binary translation of intergalactic space consists of a total of 82 zeros and 72 ones, meaning the visualisation of intergalactic space will be made of 82 circles and 72 lines.
