DMCA POSTERS (Part II)
A series of posters for Digital Media Center of the Arts (DMCA) based on the fairytale ʻHvad fatter gør er altid det rigtigeʼ (What The Old Man Does Is Always Right) by Danish author H.C. Andersen. This seriality is based on exchange, or to put it in another way, referring to the moral of the tale: Even a bad trade is a new beginning. For every poster in the series I traded objects with a friend and these new objects became the tool for generating new images. Every object had to be used in some capacity, but the idea of a certain object was as legitimate as a visual representation (e.g., a scan). After creating a poster I traded the related objects for something new. The project was a challenge of making imagery out of limited means.
