We are aware censorship exists but it is something we often put at the back of our minds. Is it keeping us safe, or is it really just keeping us the same?

Realising the self-censorship I place on myself, I used this project to explore the censorship imposed onto me back home. Posters have been used over time for both protest as well as propaganda. For this project, I designed a set of posters that combine imagery of censored material with text lifted directly from government encouraged messaging, creating a dialogue regarding the severity and absurdity of censorship. The final form of the project takes a more realistic medium of a book, providing context to each specific reference.
