A video that refers to the symbolism of ten numbers. Numbers themselves are an abstract concept, however they have hidden symbolic content when they relate to something particular. Long before the appearance of writing, a gesture symbol was used as an expression of communication. In order to explain a concept – symbolic thinking was applied. In order to explain different phenomena, activities or objects, each social group decided on a set of signs understandable for them, consequently there are numerous culturally differentiated areas all over the world. Achieving this visual effect was possible by designing an algorithm which later was automated by computer.
