ACOUSTICAL GRAPHIC WALLS FOR PHONE ROOMS "PARROT" and "TELEGRAPH"
Phone room names are inspired by the story of the The Parrots of Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. While thinking of the sound of a parrot and a telegraph, I used the Morse Code as an inspiration and starting point to create a pattern that would relate to both. Since these two graphics appear on two sides of the same wall, I used one continuous design which transitions from one side to the other.
The PARROT side is inspired by the look and vocal effects of a parrot talking. The visuals are colorful, vibrant, loud, screechy and dynamic. What happens if parrot’s gurgles, trills, whistles and squawks are translated into a telegraph message? My interpretation is presented on the right site of the double-sided wall where I incorporated parrot feathers into the Morse Code pattern. Moving to the left, towards the TELEGRAPH side of the graphic wall the Morse Code signal changes to black/white. The design elements become appropriately more organized and defined.
