The process of creating visual connections to different places is indeed abstract and individual. With my graduation project I wanted to examine these associations. I created illustrations regarding four cities based on my own visual interpretation. My aim was not to use monuments or objects closely associated with the chosen cities to try and preserve the sensation of self-discovery. I chose to work with a range of colors, materials and techniques to portray different aesthetics inspired by culture and craftsmanship.
The illustrations are applied as book covers for a series of collections of poems and short stories. The written works grasp, along with the covers, various interpretations and expressions of the chosen cities. These books are to be read before, during or after traveling to further enhance ones experience of the city.
