Identity

Series of Posters

The goal of the assignment was to create a series of A3 posters on boarders. Since the topic was so broad, I decided to narrow it down and relate it to my origin as a foreigner living in a foreign country. 

 

What is my identity? How can I be integrated into society without losing my identity? How is it that a new country becomes a new home and the birthplace becomes a touristic shelter? Is the future uncertain? 


For the visual translation, I decided to use the Georgian alphabet, which has a particular visual code, as my mother language is Georgian. I integrated my fingerprints that are also connected to the identity itself. The quote I used from Georgian philosopher, Merab Mamardashvili, is a message that conceptually connects three of my posters.
