Intercom (2006)

Intercom looked to convey the simple idea of the concealment and then discovery of a letterform within an otherwise familiar pattern. These letterforms were designed to be close representations of the recognized compositions but created within a complex and disparate grid structure of seemingly ‘on/off’ states.

The result of this experiment shows that although ‘busy’ with many interfering elements, there is still a quite straightforward path between the perception, connection and understanding of the desired letter as the ‘extra’ elements have a propensity to recede into the background.

The grid was inspired by an intercom that I saw on my daily commute.
