Semiotics is the theory of signs - gestures, facial expressions,
slogans, graffiti, music, body language, drawings, food, rituals,
clothes, paintings, sculpture, poetry, design, and marketing, to
name just a few examples.


This lesson is designed to give the students a better
understanding of how images are contextual.

Semiotics is the theory of signs - gestures, facial expressions,
slogans, graffiti, music, body language, drawings, painting,
poetry, design, and marketing.  But signs are not isolated,
they are contextual.  They are related to the culture and
social structure they are used within.



This lesson leads into a project where the students will
work in pairs to create their own video "Words" video
piece.  The video will be shot with a pocket camera, such as
a good mobile phone camera or Flip camera, edited, and uploaded
to the Web for assessment (and our entertainment!).
