Skeleton Argument

Symbol set and handout design for a performance by Josh Bitelli entitled 'Skeleton Argument' (a document produced for the court). It is most usually produced as a means of presenting the skeleton or 'bare bones' of a case before a trial.

Taking multiple forms of visual format and translation, a series of movement exercises were allocated symbol sets to create an abstract notational system from which a textual index provided instruction. Likewise, an overarching statement embedded analogous doctrines within the fields clinical practice and healthcare legislation.

The final outcomes included a series of printed T-shirts which depicted the devised symbols for the various choreographed exercises, alongside an enlarged printed handout.
