Noise: Within, Among and Beyond, Print

A publication seeking to investigate the counterintuitive mindset of stepping away from the noise we feel within, among and beyond us. The book is, in turn, organized into three sections that address those three realms. The speech by Pico Iyer on The Art of Stillness is used as the point of departure as Iyer dissects the importance of being with one’s inner self. The book then extends its gaze to cover the Hoh Rainforest—one of the quietest places on Earth, as well as an interview of a NASA astronaut on darkness and the lack of noise in outer space.

The subtly chaotic typographic system echoes the rise and fall of noise in the sound spectrum.
