Seen as some strange phenomenon; twins have fascinated and enthralled society for generations.
Highlighting some truths and exposing some myths, this info-graphic is a mixture of strange and wonderful things.
The information design was also applied to a “twin brand” of socks and t-shirts which offered guaranteed “instant twin-ship”.
Illustrations created during a four week residency in Prato Italy as part of the Monash University Culturescape program.
Created around the idea that walls served as their own historical cultural museum, the illustrations were built from the forms of renaissance paintings of Venus and Adam.
These forms were then built up in photoshop from the textures collected from travels around Venice, Florence, Bologna, Prato, Cinque Terre. This project lead to the creation of a collage series.
