Instagramic Semiotics

What kind of imagery do people use in connection to “semiotics”? This was haunting me since the beginning of the journey to the XIII International Semiotics Conference. To answer this, I downloaded all images from Instagram related to posts using #semiotics hashtag. They were approx. 55K images. Now you can explore the whole corpus online, in an interactive visualization.

Does this visualization inspire you for your presentation in the upcoming Conference? Does it support or contradicts your ideas about semiotics? Does it bring forth new semiotic realms, based upon lay understandings of a scientific term?
