More on Morse Code

In a previous post, I suggest that Hebrew Morse code can be the inspiration for new shofar blasts. I am delighted to find someone else exploring the spiritual and artistic potential of Morse code.  Visual artist Rachel Fischer has created "text art" using Hebrew Morse to create a Shema realized in Hebrew, Hebrew Morse code, and a transliteration of the Hebrew Morse code the corresponding English letters.

Kabbalists teach meditations involving focusing on syllables from the many names of God. I can see focusing on the Morse code pulses of the Shema as a similar type of meditation. (Image how popular you will be with you neighbors if you blow shema with your shofar upon raising up and laying down.)
