Hand Washing & Normative Density

by Chris MacDonald

hand_washing_wordcloudYou don’t see this kind of normative density every day. It’s a sign posted on the mirror in the bathroom of a Toronto office building.

Notice that the sign is in the shape of a hand — itself a universal (?) normative sign meaning “STOP!”

And the sign is also basically one big word-cloud, consisting of words related to hand-washing and sanitation.

Thanks to Barbara Secker for submitting the photo.
