A. Kircher states that all of the original letters, like all those descended from them, are represented in terms of their development over time. From them, we can deduce that the alphabets of all languages reveal traces of the ancient characters. The artwork investigates the relationship between semantics and visible semiotics. The concept it explores is related to N. Chomsky’s minimalist program theory: the generativists have argued that many of the properties of generative grammar arise from a universal grammar that is innate to the human brain rather than being learned from the environment. The Celestial Script researches the Visual and the Linguistic, analyzing the syntax, and pushing the boundaries of sign and symbol.

Considering the characteristics of visible signs cross-culturally, intended both spatially and temporally, it calls into question the  provenance from an academic point of view, challenging current, present-day issues of borders and racism.
