anonymous identities

Just wanted to quickly share with you a tiny snippet of one of the many projects I am happy to get out of my life. Aka it was due this morning, but whatever.

In itself, the project wasn’t worth much of my grade, but the amount of time that I spend deliberating on my topic AKA not blogging is enough for me to feel like it’s significant and relevant enough to show. Plus, I feel like any ~design~ things I share with you are well-received, but also I am kind of tired of looking at my face.

Essentially dealing with the malleableness of identity as shaped from a sociological prospective, this “visual essay” illustrated three different influencers of identity: expectations/assumptions in uniforms, how we are reflective of our environments in nonliteral ways (shown below), and the influence and sameness of varying subcultures. By blocking out my face, I demonstrate that identity can be interpreted and applied to anyone and everyone. But I mostly blocked it out because I just didn’t want to show it.

In total, this mini booklet guy was 28 pages, but for now, here are my *favourite* pages…plus the obligatory cover, because…you know.







Side note: If my family didn’t think I was weird enough already, setting up a tripod and running up and down the stairs in different outfits, (one which included chinos, a Lacoste polo shirt, and a sweater draped around my shoulders, followed by one complete with a floor length black dress, a black leather jacket and studded headband), definitely solidified myself as that kind of daughter. Sorry sorry.

    Reminds me a bit of those fun collages I see in the H&M magazine except with all the faces removed. I dig it!
