A new art installation featuring the Ubuntu font family opens today at London’s Design Museum.

Called ‘Shape My Language’, the exhibition is the work of Bruno Maag of design agency Dalton Maag, creators of the new Ubuntu font, and features ‘a large collection of glyphs from the world’s many script systems‘ suspended from within the Design Museum’s stairwell – including typography from the Ubuntu font.

Canonical are also present, offering visitors the chance to get involved with Ubuntu in the form of tweets to ‘@shapemylanguage’ being projected in the Ubuntu font alongside the display.

Entrance to the Design Museum costs £10 for adults/£9 for concessions/£6 for students. The installation will be running for one month, from 28 January until 28 February 2011.
