The transcoding of the alphabet appears on four tapestries woven by a zero-one (under-over) Jacquard process. Based on the principle that weaving is a code, the fabric displays a language pattern that extends the notion of the flag as signal to the tapestry as encyclopaedia. The many possible ways of structuring the combinations produce diverse geometrical patterns, thus creating a connection between formal logic and written language.
