    For the title wall for Soundings: A Contemporary Score, an exhibition of sound art at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Curator Barbara London instructed that the desig “should fill the space as sound fills a room.”

    Designer Luke Williams used type to achieve the effect:

    Through use of scale, value, non-uniform letter spacing, as well as unconventional spacial applications, we were able to capture the essence of a room filled with sound using only typography. Color values represented volume; spacing represented tempo or rhythm; corner-wrapping paint embodied the essence of sound in space, rejecting physical boundaries.

    A short video documents the painting of the wall.
