The Atrium, Te Aro Campus

Aa–Zz : a typographic installation [analogue/digital/object] is a project by third-year Communication Design students.

Issued as 26 letters of the Latin alphabet in uppercase and lowercase, these singular works are the outcomes of research and examination into the letterform in relation to its graphic, spatial, and contextual qualities—whether historic, contemporary, social, cultural, political, or any other point of interest.

Constructed collectively in three groups, the installation itself is a large-scale composition of letterforms, with each group occupying a segment of the Atrium space, as redefined in plan. Consideration is given to the placement and interactive relationships between each of the works across three media categories [analogue/digital/object].

In doing so, Aa–Zz, with the project’s anomalies, offers myriad ways of seeing type as graphic: type as language.

Please note: During COVID-19 alert level 2 or higher, the campus is not open to the general public for safety reasons. Thank you for your understanding.
