A sculpture exhibit featured large concrete volumes, that occupied the space in various ways, challenging the crowd to interact with the space. This exhibit was mutable, in essence creating a new exhibit daily. The pieces would crack and break, revealing the structure of the moulds. We opted to interpret the type as moulds. The type needed to have both the characteristics of the mould and of the wire structure that lives inside the concrete. To create this, we 3D printed the title of the exhibit and created several typographic compositions. The type became the sculptures themselves.

1/4 studio is a Porto based graphic design studio, working mostly with the cultural field and with tech startups. The approach lies in the intersection between the analog and the digital, and the handcrafted and the technological. The studio specializes in making publications, particularly books (physical or digital), but also produces visual identities, websites and exhibitions.
