Considering Irma Boom’s contracting/opposing personalities(?) I realized she has a contrasting/opposing style and personality. Her works are amazing, bold and daring, one of a kind, yet she’s a really shy person. She rarely looks at her audience when she gives a presentation/speech. She fidgets with the pages, corner of her books and has quite a lot of hand gestures when she gives a presentation. She herself also mentioned that she had her hair down and covered her face while she was working at the government printing office. Seeing this contrast in her personality and work, it’s like she’s a completely different person when she works.
I looked into ways to present this dilemma, and thought of arrows pointing in opposite direction. I tried to arrange the text and images as if they are going in different directions (-> <-). I thought the layout looks quite interesting, but it would be quite difficult to fit all of the text in. It’s rather hard to read as well.
Having presented this in my presentation, Sally gave me some feedback on this. I agree with her that there’s too much text in it.
