WHY DO YOU LIKE THIS PROJECT?

Because of its roughness.

The project was mapping points of view on the definition of the book.

WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE ABOUT IT?

I wish I hadn’t sliced it into 15 pieces – I am still not sure what I was thinking.

OUTCOMES

An insight about the nature of the book.

FEEDBACK

It was generally liked, with comments such as ‘it’s typically Dutch’ (which I found strange at the time).

PROJECT SIMILARITIES THEN AND NOW

There are more similarities in the concepts than in the visual style. Both projects map information, one in words and the other with images, although the starting point to both was the same: in-depth research.
