Exchange

Exchange

Exchange explores intimate regionalism by uncovering the vernacular language of urban art. It is a portable dialogue space that serves as a conduit to reflect on the presence and impact of street art that isn’t readily understood or perhaps overlooked within the East Hollywood neighborhood of Little Armenia. Within the prototype, I used both the Armenian and English translation of the word Exchange. The typography's line width is intentionally the same for both translations in order to remove any interpretation of cultural hierarchy.
