Semiotic Devices

Semiotic Devices are sign systems that display the primacy of form and concept. Form being how meaning is made, and concept, what we are communicating about. Each device plays as an interactive sign, signifying either itself, which in definition is not a sign, or something other than itself, which is a sign.
