An Opera for Animals

Identity

The identity for An Opera for Animals takes a typo­graphic approach to express­ing the themes of the exhi­bi­tion — the com­plex­i­ties of per­for­mance and its con­nec­tion to a natural state, its position within the modern world, and how that modern world was arrived at.

A rel­a­tively expres­sion­is­tic OCR-​inspired typeface from the early days of grunge-​esque type is stretched ver­ti­cally, revealing sur­pris­ingly organic qualities — a snaking figure here, a tail there, and wild.
