The symbols of Lexeme date back to before Ancient Egypt, yet can be seen within artwork and literature throughout human history.

Lexeme symbols date back to before Ancient Egypt, yet can be seen within artwork and literature throughout human history. Some believe these symbols formed one of the earliest religions based on the belief that through darkness there is always light, some believe them to be evidence of visitors from another planet, but there is universal agreement that each of these symbols represents a different lexeme within our language.

Artist Stephen Irving explores these symbols, and the ideas and concepts they raise, through a series of new original artwork as well archival footage and imagery that he has collected through his research.
