This project concentrates on Alzheimer’s Disease and its progressive, degenerative way of destroying the human memory and body. Using tree rings with a hole in the middle as a way of illustrating the disease in an abstract way. The work communicates the seven different stages of the disease through a series of seven posters.
This shows the hand made folder and one of the A3 posters for the collection.
Captions of text describe a stage of the disease in relevance to an individual person.
Each illustration has been hand drawn, each different and each showing the hole getting bigger.
Using silk screen-printing for text on the folder, it relates the collection to Alzheimer’s disease.
These scattered markings represent the decay of the body and mind, each stage getting worse.
