Murray Art Museum Albury
Abstract type system

Material Sound is an immersive sound art exhibition featuring a group of audio experiences within installations and apparatus constructed from everyday materials. Formist was engaged by the Murray Art Museum Albury to create an active identity that would merge with the exhibition and become a part of its abstract makeup. Formist deconstructed typographic boundaries to create a type system that references the abstraction and buzz of experimental sound art. Each character is constructed using a rudimentary system that in turn creates an identifiable abstraction. Conventional divisions of letter and line spacing are ignored, instead characters seem to merge together, and the spacing within each letter dictates the rhythm of the type. Frequency provides a tonal effect to the Material Sound communications that subverts clarity and allows a greater instinctive feeling to emerge, blurring the lines between the exhibition and its identity.
