The act of writing and sending greeting cards, postcards and invitations not only makes each message unique, printed cards are memories in tangible form and they also bear a certain charm that electronic communication cannot replace.

Works of Chiharu Shiota 塩田 千春 Berlin based Japanese installation designer

Rooms that were once lived in have become solid blocks of stone, megaliths piled one on top of another like an infant giant’s building bricks. Foursquare sash windows that once looked out on to the world have become blind, heavy, cruciform reliefs. Doors that once opened have become sealed panels of rock. The house has, itself, become a giant sarcophagus, a mausoleum containing (but also concealing, as mausoleums do) the lives and memories of all the people who once lived there.

Another illustration journal that I found in the library. Illustrations are based on the author’s childhood memories of his house and the farm. I really like the way he used different textures and patterns to illustrate the different parts of the surroundings.

Presentation boards for the health brief, with the finalized poster designs and posters fitted in context. I think the posters came out quite well. If I were to improve my designs, I would have tried digging up more old/ childhood photographs of people doing exercises. I think having a wider range of photographs and illustrating different kinds of exercises would have given the posters a broader range and more variety.
