  2. ICNUU is a platform and a tool, working like an advanced social network. Advanced by the fact, that participants are allowed to communicate via complex visual, graphical and iconic language, using no words. Social by the fact, that it brings new tools for collaborative interaction on-line.
    Within this network people communicate with a new code for an old system. The new code works as a sensual stenography to create a visual statement in a narrative format. In practice ICONUU offers icons to design your communication and gives you also the possibility to create your own icons. The main aim is to put creativity before pragmatism.

PIPES Project is dedicated to reflection and development of digital communicative tools. The inspiration came from classical structuralistic interpretation of trinity of signifying functions of sign: icon-index-symbol. Well, Pipes are dedicated to icons. Literally. The stakeholders (CIANT Prague, ZKM Karlsruhe, HANGAR Barcelona, BRAINZ Prague) are leading theoretical and practical programme of iconic communication. No words involved, no letters, no voices, just pictures - yet information, emotion and message sent. The treasure to be brought is unique on-line platform called ICONUU – an interactive digital wall enabling its users to draw, show, share and co-create iconic messages without primal limitation of time/space or mother tongue. Obviously other limitations might come out even stronger. Quite adventurous, isn’t it?
The project aims to have an innovative look at the communication formats that enable universal creative expression across distances, bridge real and virtual domains, and last but not least cross borders seamlessly. We will bring together artists, designers, communication theorists and technologists in order to realize mobility-led creative processes while developing new visual communication tools, producing artistic and educational events on- and off-line, as well as delivering sustainable models of public engagement that is creative.
