Animation "No-No Land"
"No-No Land" is a short abstract on the history and origin of the ASL sign for "NO." History showed the evolution of the sign, starting with a more defined "N" and "O" which shortened through the passing of generations to a more of a faster and abbreviated "NO" - discarding the slower more sequenced version of N-O. It fascinated me, the evolution of language. Also when the "NO" is taken out of context and placed on its own - it closely resembles an animal with a duck beak. It led to an absurd idea of putting a metaphor on the whole evolution. What if the signs were real animals? What if the older version of the NO went extinct like animals did? Hence, I present "No-No Land" which is still a rough version of what I have visualized. Enjoy!
