Aa–Z! : a typographic installation [analogue/digital/object]

9 months ago by

Aa–Z! : a typographic installation [analogue/digital/object] at twentysix on Constable Street is a typography project by third-year Tātai Momotuhi / Typography sudents in Communication Design at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington.

Consisting of twenty-six letters of the Latin alphabet and an exclamation mark, the installation is a large-scale composition of letterforms populating the gallery space. Ranging across three media categories [analogue/digital/object], each work is a result of research and examination into the letterform and its graphic, spatial and contextual qualities, whether historic, contemporary, social, cultural, political or any other point of interest.

Consideration is given to the placement and interactive relationships between works and media. In doing so, Aa–Z!, with the project’s anomalies, offers myriad ways of seeing type as graphic: type as language.

twentysix, 26 Constable Street, Newtown

Gallery hours: 2–6pm Tuesday–Friday, 10–6pm Saturday

12–16 October, 2021

Taking around a decade to come into creation, the Epicene Collection is an experiment in modernising Baroque letterforms.
