What’s that sound?

2022


For my final MA project I‘ve been exploring creative coding as a way to push the boundaries of traditional poster design. The result is an audio-reactive poster campaign that promotes Bristol’s sonic identity and draws attention to noise pollution. All posters are created using javascript and react to surrounding acoustic settings. A website provides further information about the campaign.

Sound is a fundamental part of our cities. It contributes to the vibrancy and urban identity of a place, as well as the health and wellbeing of its citizen. Unfortunately, sound is often overlooked or simply overshadowed by noise. The campaign promotes the soundscapes of Bristol and lets them come to life. Digital posters around the city invite you to take off your headphones, pause for a moment and listen to the acoustic universe around you.
