This project was an exercise in restriction, with a brief precisely specifying the size, written content and number of posters. I chose to combine digital and analogue methods, photographing, editing and composing inkjet printed posters then using a letterpress to print the information and title of each poster in metallic silver ink. I chose this method as it would allow the content to always be readable, as well as not dominating the image.
A project exploring the triangulation of three randomly generated words; 'Family', 'Civil' and 'Impassion'. The first exploration (Brother, National, Heartfelt) led me to the Good Country Index, a rating system for the good a country does outside its borders. I then crossed this with other data to display correlations and insights. The second triangulation (Tribe, Political, Polarise) took me to the Ideological Consistency Scale, a study showing the increasing polarity between Republican and Democrat voters in the U.S.
This project was a response to my thesis, 'Cracking The Quip: What Do Puns Teach Us About Ourselves?'. The thesis focused on the psychoanalytical aspects of punning and the joy of solving a riddle. I responded to this with a card game, the Romulus & Rebus Movie Name Game.
