This experimental installation was a typography exercise
using a non-traditional medium. It featured the German word for speed limit
highlighting the contrast in languages. The choice of the medium supported
the creation of an edgy, strong and contemporary black letter typeface to
underline the cultural origin. Installed on a 114 inches x 48 inches cork board
with bubble wrap filled with colored water. Thanks to Kyle Gustafson for the support in researching
materials, early planning and brainstorming concepts.
Sad fact, the installation was demolished two weeks after completion by the workers renovating the work space. I created this piece at work after hours. I wish I could have witnessed the water splashing everywhere.
