In a sense, isn't that what Rochester has done in some of its photographic books?  It uses the arrows of Sign Writing with photographic renderings of signs to prevent the photographs from being ambiguous.

Valerie, you are everywhere, even if in little pieces.

But he is using a lot of symbols from SignWriting...take a look at the
attached GIF...around half of the symbols in this diagram are
specifically from SignWriting...the trembling line, the dot on the
arrow stem, etc...so I guess he is trying to blend different writing
systems together...probably for the sake of "standardization"...a
little like an "Esperanto" for sign writing systems - ha!

Val ;-)
