Work in progress for Imaging Apartheid (part 1)

I’ve been slowly working on this for a month with feedback and discussion with Kevin Lo.

It is a poster for the Imaging Apartheid project.

Kevin envisioned the original concept of a shattering wall. Taking off from there I struggled to find an aesthetic hook but have finally in the last few days taken to some angles, textures, and perspectives. I should be done in a week or so (which is beyond the deadline so we’ll see what happens).

Update: subsequent posts discussing work on this poster:
Part 2
Part 3

Below: Sometimes I take a moment to play with offshoots of the core design, too.
