Letterforms have sounds too!

Julius Popp's Bit.Fall

Although water has no shape or form, it takes on letterforms. Popp creates this unique machine that makes words out of water. I thought this was pretty interesting because he combines science and art to make you feel the words as they fall. As soon as you read the words in the 2 second it freezes in space, it disappears.

Meek FM Typographic Synthesizer

Rob Meek and Frank Muller built this awesome synthesizer that lets you adjust the sound based on the letterform. For example, there's one knob that lets you adjust the serifs and another that lets you play with how think or thin the forms get. It's almost as if the forms are talking!
