(misc) Looking for Alphabets

Abe Masayo is an industrial designer and a professor of the Estonian Academy of Arts. She is famous for hosting many workshop seminars for professional designers, amateurs and children.

I read about one of her methods, in which the participants are asked to find things that look like letters of the alphabet but are not originally intended to be letters outdoors in order to develop watchful eyes. This may help us pay attention to ordinary things that we may have otherwise dismissed.

Well, I thought it was kind of interesting and tried to find some letters while I was taking a walk today. Yes, it was fun though I may look odd or a bit suspicious. 'X', 'V' and 'W' were easy to find everywhere on the artificial structures but I could find no Rs. Asterisks were pretty and beautiful and above all, I loved a 'c' made of Dutch clover.
