How about writing about the tools and materiales we first used to write and how they shaped the letterforms we use today?

In a type design class, I demonstrated how to make a font by pouring salt on black paper.

I once had a student who made letters by arranging seaweed.

AS much as we may surround our selves with cement, plastic and glass, we are no less a part of nature than anything else on earth. You can't really step out of nature, so what's your definition of nature? Where do you draw the line.

My point: perhaps you could look at old signage - rusting, pealing, crumbling, covered in lichen, mould - Home to birds. Going back to nature.
