Like undulating hillsides, the Poetic Morphology art installation rises and falls with natural beauty. A unique installation, it is part of the 22nd Festival International Poster and Graphic Chaumont. A lovely landscape of letters, they come together to form the the poem 'Oppressive light' by Robert Walser.

A path is formed strategically within the Poetic Morphology installation to invite visitors to read the poem in its entirety. Arranged by the window where light, time and weather can come into play, the text is able to detach itself from its intrinsic meaning so as to let form, typography and composition take over.

Created by the Cloud Collective, the Poetic Morphology art installation is currently being presented at The Factory, a former printing plant on textiles.
