As a mode of communication, speech conveys valuable information neglected in the formalised practice of typography.
Speech Patterns: Typography sans Type, is an interactive installation that visualises speech without the use of letterforms or written language. In creating an experimental system of visualising spoken language, users generate outcomes to illuminate the presence of para-linguistic data in speech, reveal its patterns and structures, and its power to impart meaning. These outcomes are then applied in various graphic environments.
Speech Patterns: Typography sans Type was coded using Processing 2.0.
This project received the Object Gallery award for design in 2010.
