At Y Worlds, we are introducing a universally adaptable semiotic language that addresses complexity. This is the first of a series of experimental applications of visual representation. We have chosen Multiple Sclerosis as one of our first topics because it is hard to find a compelling and satisfactory synthesis of its systemic origins, mechanisms and scope.
In this pictographic series, we introduce the concept of disease causation and apply it to some of the hypothesis about what triggers Multiple Sclerosis. The circular rings represent myelin, the complex rings of sheathing around nerves in the body – the focus of attention as the body component clearly deformed by the processes behind the family of symptoms that we call “MS”. This is Part 1 of a 6 Part Series on MS.
