“This work (called Stereo.type) is a synthesis of our typographic language with the physical expression of our body language. These kinetic structures make the viewer listen with their eyes… or how can we make sound and its symbols found in language able to be heard visually. How can we unlock the sleeping meaning latent in a authors arrangement of letters and words to be free and as expressive as its content. When words come alive it will not be quiet. Some may yell or whisper, but they all are saying something.” — Ebon Heath

Ebon Heath is a Brooklyn-based graphic designer bouncing back and forth between Berlin and Bali, that designs various styles of typographic mobiles which he calls Stereo.type. Each of these mobiles are made from thousands of letters of Tyvek paper which are then assembled on fishing wire to form these poetic strings of lettering that can be anything from lyrics of songs to poems. He was featured on the cover of Complex Magazine as you see above and has an interview of his process.
