Hidden in this image is a word or phrase. What is it?

Hint #1:

Almost all of the intersections and all of the dots are on a certain lattice. This lattice is important.

Hint #2:

The lattice is 5x15. Its columns correspond to letters.

  • $\begingroup$ (Thanks Google) You can use LunaPic: www181.lunapic.com/editor/?action=rotate. It's an online image editor. Download the above picture and cut it into 3 parts with the dots at the center, then use LunaPic to rotate them. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1





Wherever there's a mark on a lattice point (either dot or corner/intersection/line), it's interpreted as a 1; where there isn't, it's interpreted as a 0. Read down the columns to get 5-bit binary, then convert to letters (A is 1, B is 2) to get the answer.
