This week we went on a schooltrip to England.
Spent some great days in London and had a project with students from Kingston University. We were asked to reinvent the dying poster, working in groups, and show the result at an exhibition at the end of the week.
My group felt that the reason the poster is dying is because there are so many of them, they almost kill each other. We wanted a poster that stood out, was never the same and made people stop and look at it. We used photochromic pigment in the ink, which would only show when exposed to direct sunlight . In the dark or indoors the text would be invisible= the poster dies.
We screen printed our design onto our poster, and took it out and photographed it in daylight, dusk and night showing the stages of its transformation.
