Phonetic Expressions in Colour, 1980 Edition

September 29 – November 7, 1980

A fascinating exhibition where Mischa German-van Eck uses the phonetic branch of linguistics to translate aspects of human voice into colours. The titles of the pieces draw from the vocabulary of linguistics, with titles such as Low Front Vowel and Voiceless and Voiced Apico-Alveolar Stops.
