Stereotyped in Object’s Project Space 4- 26th September (Final Week)

Stereotyped: Sound and Typography is an experimental exhibition that brings together composers and graphic designers, film-makers and sound engineers, musicians and typographers to challenge the definition of the ‘designer’ in the 21st Century.

Sound design, the manipulation of audio elements to achieve a desired effect and, typography, the art and technique of arranging type, were once highly professional fields of specialization. Now, both mediums are used by a myriad of disciplines to create meaning in diverse forms. Moreover, with the evolution of digital technologies a plethora of amateur sound and typography ‘designers’ have cropped up- anyone with a computer can create sound and type at home.

Consequently, Stereotyped is a cross-disciplinary collaboration that tests, interrogates and pushes the stereotype of a designer. Curated by Joan-Maree Hargreaves, Object’s Producer- Digital & Publications, Stereotyped is an unforgettable sensory experience that challenges commonly held beliefs.
