Culture & Identification

This was a project to raise questions about what sort of a designer us students at Portsmouth were. Weather we were concerned about self preservation and earning some cash, or whether we had a ethical boarder line we wouldn’t cross e.g. working for certain corporations who have any form scrutiny about their practices and treatments of employees. I researched heavily into culture jamming and discovered one of my now favourite magazines, Adbusters, in response to this i really enjoyed the detournement adverts on the back of their magazines, it was such a large canvas for expression, so I responded with my own response to the oil business and certain research findings on how they have slowed the global outcry for conservation of energy. I silk screened the poster using water based inks onto some handmade Indian paper I acquired, not only did this have a fantastically unique affect on the print, it upheld the ethical decisions i made about my work.
