In 2006, South African ceramicist Elton Harding, translated the opening track 'I Love You' into a ceramic tactile sculpture. The entire song was mapped out onto a rectangular spiral, with each second of the track taking up 1cm. Samples were then represented by unique shapes allowing for the song to be 'read' either by sight or touch.
