Jaye Moon has been working with Legos and Braille language as art media since the early 90’s. Braille’s system is based on binary code, which can be universally interchanged. Legos are also based on a numerical system, so translating the bricks into Braille creates a visual, thus universal format.

Since Legos and Braille language are based on mathematical principles, she believes that they can transcend political, cultural and social tendencies. Using the Braille and bricks’ universal abstract nature, she visualizes the process of connecting people and cultures.
