Translating sound into a visual design is not always the easiest of tasks. The idea of this particular exercise was to make a map describing the sounds that one hears sitting in the same spot over the course of an hour. This day’s particular class was led by a substitute so some parts of the assignment might have been interpreted differently than intended.
It was decided that the sounds would be shown through each individual’s preferred signs. Here, the “signs” that make up the sounds are actual words that write out exactly what the sounds were. As can be seen, the majority of sounds were made from cars, dogs, and footsteps.
