Typographic Installation Comes Alive When Viewed From Passing Trains
Artist Andrew Byrom plays with our vision in this eye-catching and dynamic installation
Gazing out from the windows of the Metro Gold Line, passengers in Azusa can now see a special typographic installation by Andrew Byrom. “Wisdom is Supreme” was created for Azusa Pacific University and uses a minimal red and white palette to create a sense of movement. As a passenger on the train watches the letters, they seem to pulsate. This optical illusion adds another layer of visual interest to the piece, adding something unique to the passenger’s everyday commute.
The installation is also a visual break for those on the university grounds going about their everyday business. Byrom’s mural measures about 100 feet, according to designboom, and the video captures its many sides from afar and nearby.
