Brick Walls Used For Morse Code Messaging

A Swedish artist uses the urban environment as an off-beat communication medium.

Swedish street artist, Glitsch, has a new installation titled ‘Wall Of Sound 17’ that uses brick walls as an effective medium for inscribing Morse code messages using duct tape.  It uses the smaller bricks to represent the dots, and the longer bricks to represent the slashes of Morse code. The system takes advantage of the modularity found in brickwork to create a graffiti-like tagging and branding of urban walls, using an unconventional platform to revive an obsolete language.

Glitsch explains:

The words ‘of’ and ‘sound’ have been taped onto the bricks. The words ‘of’ and ‘sound’ have been translated into Morse codes which in turn produce their respective sounds. of: — — — · · — · sound: · · · — — — · · — — · — · · The dots in the Morse Code have been replaced by white short rectangles to fit the bricks structure.
