In the sphere of script, the phenomenon of illegibility forms part of our everyday life. Most of us can remember jotting a note that nobody, including ourselves, could later decode; most of us have experienced the impossibility of deciphering someone else’s scribbles, or an encounter with a sign system that we could not understand. What do we feel when faced with such situations: irritation, powerlessness, helplessness? And what if this peculiar state when, desired so much, the sense escapes us blatantly and irretrievably, opens a different kind of perception in which script becomes a material phenomenon in itself, an intriguing ornament, or a code that does not carry any information?
