THE CITY OF ADDERSFIELD

THE CITY OF ADDERSFIELD / 2020

Inspired by the work of film graphic designer Annie Atkins, I am seeking to exclusively utilize the medium of graphic design to tell a story. The City of Addersfield is an interactive narrative experience. Through the specific curation of physical and printed ephemera, Addersfield tells the layered story of small town fire being investigated for an insurance claim. The audience is asked to engaged with and explore the tactile evidence to gain perspective and understanding of goings-on within the quaint, lumber-ridden community.

What do time cards, telegrams, and tree oils have to do with an arson case?
