Anathema

Anathema

 

This project was based on the notion of exploring how responsive print- or systems of interaction through editorial design- could change how a piece is perceived by the viewer. Through thirty two pages of editorial work, the headlines and body text rotate in a way which demands the reader to spiral the publication ninety degrees at a time,
in a clockwise 

fashion for a total of twelve full rotations- an indication of the writings' introspective content. The photography, illustration, and typographic forms throughout the publication serve as a means to force juxtaposition between the exterior world with the subliminal one addressing the subjectivity of perceived reality and lasting impressions of memory.
