L'Atlas invents a language of signs as much as words. Combining influences from Ancient Greek, Arabic calligraphy and modern tag, L'Atlas imagines what universal urban communication could become. And by posting these maze-like symbols across the city, he creates intriguing landmarks to challenge our directions. L'Atlas pushes his exploration further when he captures prints from urban objects - such as man hole covers - in an attempt to create the ultimate urban language: using the words of the city itself.
