"My Workbook: Coreforms and Keywords 1.01" — A Project of Nature in Urban Settings

"My Workbook: Coreforms & Keywords 1.01" is an art action by Deborah Adams Doering and DOE Projekts. 

Doering began exploring concepts related to "core language of form" and "core forms" (now Coreforms) after receiving her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Doering's concept of Coreforms includes the zero (circle) seen as a one (vertical line) or a hyphen (horizontal line). The tilde (swash) represents a movement through space from one position to another.

These interrelated forms are signifiers (a linguistic unit or pattern) created to engage both individuals and our growing global society, a society experiencing rapid movement in perspectives, ideas, and socially-engaged consciousness. Coreforms' signification (meaning) is multivalent and depends on context. The forms are foundational to text (texting, digital imaging, messaging). As both counterpoint and continuation of Coreforms, Doering and DOE Projekts explore Keywords, additional signifiers with multivalent signification.
