  • Freedom of Religion



    Using red acetate (or just the red side of 3-d glasses) to look through, the viewer is to see two views of the restriction of religion in this world. The viewer first sees the poster without the red acetate to see reality, and once the poster is seen through the red acetate, components in the poster disappear and a more hopeful image is shown. Since you probably won't have red acetate on hand I will show what the image will look like with and without the acetate.

    • well developed and easily understood concept?

    This is an innovative interpretation of a much-used conceptual solution for the topic at hand. Your conceptual solution communicates a multi-layered massage which is not as clear as your solution for the poster on ‘freedom of expression’. The graffiti styled image (alluding to subversive action) and the use of 3D glasses (a different point of view) actively engages the viewer on an intellectual and interactive level yet it remains ‘morbid’ in this instance. The sombre tone of the colour pallet and the sad expression on the figure’s face results in a sombre subtext that does not leave the viewer with an uplifting impression and does not inspire pro-action – one wonders what has changed?

    • level of social engagement?

    The solution is unresolved.

    • understanding of the issues reflected in the poster?

    Not clear.

    • sense of internationalism and accessibility?

    The solution is unresolved.
