These Abstract Sculptures Spell Words When Viewed at the Right Angles

Boa Mistura has created a unique display of typographic sculptures that look like a cluster of erect pillars. The pure white pillars sit in clusters with bright letters boldly printed on each. While the pillars look random, they actually present words when viewed at the correct angle.

These unique typographic sculptures are placed among architecturally rich communities. The modern white pillars with bright yellow, red and blue writing catch the eye of passersby. Each pillar is a triangular-based prism that allows the letters to have an entire flat surface to be displayed upon. The intricate sculptures read different words from each angle due to the three sided pillars, which allows the artist to utilize the entire shape.

This artist has created elaborate works of art among the city streets in previous projects, but this latest display highlights empty street spaces rather than empty building walls.
