Type.bmp II : LG U+ Installation

Bronze
2011

Type.bmp II is a typography installation piece made of hot-glue sticks that sits in the lobby of the new LG U+ building in Korea. The inspiration arose from a discussion about the common cliché of the use of rasterized and low-resolution type in kitsch graphic ephemera. Rather than denounce it, the team decided to use it as a springboard to explore and provoke questions.
