Meaning takes shape through a series of actions that connect thinking with material media. Text uses writing instruments, representing phonemes and ideographs in graphemes on paper or screen. Image creates two dimensional visual meanings on canvas, or paper, or screen. Space and object create three dimensional meanings. Meanings are made in and by bodies. Sound and speech present meanings in hearable form. Meaning forms are the means by which meaning is made, the media through which representation or communication occurs, where thinking or thinkable things are expressed in text, image, space, object, body, sound, and speech.
