[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family. A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]
I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.
it’s really interesting seeing death portrayed as a woman
Especially a a nurturer rather than a destroyer
I wanted to share this poster we made for the Graphic Design Festival Breda which was held last month. We designed a typography poster with a visual update of a quote from the movie Fight Club. The poster was one of the winners of the Reflect - Poster Project.
The movie Fight Club was released in 1999, a pre-social media era. Tyler Durden was literally talking about our possessions, and how they can dominate and take over our lives. Fast-forwarding to the present there might be something else that made us slaves to our possessions. Putting Tyler Durden’s statement in a whole new perspective.
