1. Glyph Project - A study of colors and symbols in Western culture.

Welcome to the "Glyph Project" survey. This survey will collect responses from a sampling of our diverse western culture. Responses to the survey will identify the meaning of symbols and colors as they relate to universal values found in the respondent’s belief system. Everyone, age 18 or older, who resides at least 6 months of the year within the United States, may participate in this survey. Respondents do not need to be a citizen of the United States. No personal identifying information will be required. It is important that you answer all survey questions. If you would like more details on this project please see the web page www.glyphproject.info Only one survey will be accepted from each computer IP address.

"Glyph" ART INSTALLATION PROJECT - The artist conducting this survey will use the data collected to develop a multi-media art exhibit. The exhibit will include actual research materials and multiple art works formed as a result of the artist's review of the various survey samplings.
