Visualising distances that Hubble can see

The three books aim to visually contextualise the distance that the Hubble Space Telescope can see. The books rely on combining a varying quantity of dots and applying a scale to them. The books take the viewer on a journey starting from Earth and ending at different points depending upon their scale, with book C ending 13.4 billion light years away, the furthest distance Hubble can see.

2001 A Space Odyssey, colour and perspective breakdown

There is both a CMYK and RGB outcome for this project that looks at the deconstruction and mapping of colour and shape within Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 A Space Odyssey. The CMYK outcome shows the colour breakdown of every 1200th frame whilst the RGB shows every 300th of 2001 using the Kubrick (one point) Perspective as a grid. This grid is then used to break down each frame into its different areas of perspective. The average colour of each of these is then applied, resulting in the final image used for each page/frame.

Process Books

These are the process books for each of the three final major projects, two are attached on one binding whilst the third slots in between the other two when closed. The covers of the books are embossed with the first letter of each project and the end papers are patterned with recurring elements from the containing project.
