Ebon Heath's 'Visual Noise' sculptures are meant to reflect modern living, but they seem better than just regular mobiles.

The 'Visual Noise' sculptures are formed out of letters and words, formed together into mobiles that create cascades of jumbled text. The outcome is a very graphic and exciting sculpture.

"The structures are a physical representation of our language as object," said Heath. "This 'visual noise' permeates all aspects of modern culture, especially living... It is this cozy womb of information, data or chorus of cacophony that my mobiles hope to represent as well as reveal."

'Visual Noise' by Ebon Heath can be seen here or on his website.

Implications - Artists are increasingly using mainstream culture's love of typography as an opportunity to use graphic representations of letters and words as a social statement.
