MEG JOHNSON | CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVER

Twisted

This collection of thrillers is temptingly twisted. Each novel revealing a section of the mind unfamiliar and terrifying to say the least. They emphasize the psychology of their characters and their unstable emotional states. Read these stories and investigate the characters perceptions, thoughts, distortions, as they struggle to grasp reality. Each story will leave you with a view of the world from which you’ve never seen before, and never will see again.

 

Assignment

Design a series of five book covers and title pages.

Animate at least three of the covers for online use.

 

Concept

Visual inspiration came from my intensive forensic science research on blood stains in connection to the murder weapon(s) used in each novel.

Installation

Inspired by the murderous nature of these book covers, I wanted people to experience them in an environment as creepy as the stories themselves. Using plastic tarps, duct tape, and lots of fake blood I displayed the books under little light and on the floor forcing the viewer to crouch down to see them as if they were investigating a crime scene.  The animations accompany the books on a tall pedestal with music that will leave you crawling in your own skin. This installation is in the Godine Family Gallery from March 13th - March 17th at Massachusetts College of Art and Design featured in the Graphic Design and Fashion All School Show 2017.
