What is the most challenging project you’ve worked on recently and why?
The most challenging project to date was my first MA project. We were briefed to create a product (along with a trademark) that would be sold at a pop-up shop for just one day. The aim was to create something different and innovative. My first idea was to make a pornographic peer-to-peer magazine, I later on realised that it could include something else. Dot-to-dot is a self-publishing magazine, consisting of texts and erotic images of several authors, who combined make a journey throughout the history of sexuality from Classical Antiquity to the present day, through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the emergence of photography as well as the first pornographic magazines. I want the reader to reflect and question today’s sexuality. Is there still repression? How is sexuality linked to marketing and power relations? I decided to deconstruct the characteristics of a traditional child´s game to create a new narrative. The reader has access to the hidden images and texts by opening the perforated French-folded pages once the dot-to-dot image is completed. I want the readers to question but simultaneously play with the situation, linking points and finding the images. I was motivated to find a different approach to a socially sensitive theme in an inclusive and open-minded way.
