In the audiovisual poem Sunset am Meer (1967) the text emphasises the visual in a more organic way. It is a handwritten piece of typography in which examples of onomatopoeia such as ‘klotst’, ‘patpatpatpat’ and ‘gállalop’ form a hand drawn circle and an elegant ‘S’ shape. The work appears so organic due to the spontaneous handwriting that is let loose across the text area. The combination of the handwriting and the curves simultaneously evokes a concrete and a mental image of a sunset at the coast.
