Iconoclasm (image-breaking) is a destruction of icons and other images most often for religious or political reasons. In a broader sense, the word refers to actions against any established status quo or orthodoxy. My case discusses destruction and reconstruction of imagery concerning visual conventions of traffic signs. Those images do not have a sacred, but a performative function, upon which we act in our daily lives. My method could be considered structuralist and my image-breaking method tends to break traffic signs into elements that are assembled anew into images with an unclear meaning. The system is being rebuilt, and now when obviously the new one has been created, governed by different set of rules, the question rises if the system was broken at all. The new imagery has been defined, but was the system really broken? Can there be an image/system-breaking without following (visual) conventions of the signs? Could the change come completely from the outside? Who has the capacity of creating the system?
