All my adult life I have been interested in science – cosmology, astrophysics and quantum mechanics in particular. Learning about the strange phenomena in our universe has irrevocably shaped how I view the universe and life in general.
I would love more people to learn about the mysteries of the universe and feel the same excitement and wonder I do, but the problem is that most concepts are very hard to understand. Many phenomena are impossible to see with the naked eye and/or go against common sense and what people feel is ‘reality’. Therefore one has to spend considerable energy to truly grasp these ideas and what they imply. With this personal project I hoped to tackle this problem by writing about the subject in layman’s terms and visualising them to my best ability in order to make the subject more approachable.
The project comprises of the book I wrote, designed and illustrated, a accompaniment website and posters.
The project was selected for emerge 2011 graphic design graduate showcase and also shown at D&AD: New Blood 2011.
All writing and editorial work. Art direction and graphic design of the book, posters and website. The applets that generate the graphics were programmed with Processing.
