STAINLESS MIND OF THE KAMI



THE STAINLESS MIND OF THE KAMI IS A SOCIAL CHANGE PROJECT RESEARCHING INTO THE ENVIRONMENTAL BELIEFS IN JAPANESE CULTURE AND RELIGION AND HOW IT COULD HELP IN SAVING OUR PLANET. PRODUCING A SERIES OF JAPANESE INSPIRED POSTERS AS WELL AS A MAGAZINE WHICH COVERS TOPICS SUCH AS; THE UNEXPECTED BENEFITS THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC HAS HAD ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND HOW TO IMPLEMENT JAPANESE DAILY RITUALS INTO YOUR LIFESTYLE AS A WAY TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE.


RESEARCHING INTO SHINTOISM WAS ENLIGHTENING TO ME AND HELPED ME TO CHANGE MY OWN LIFESTYLES TO FURTHER BENEFIT THE ENVIRONMENT AND HELP IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE. JAPANESE SYMBOLISM HAS STUCK WITH ME AND HAS INSPIRED ME IN FUTURE PROJECTS.


THE IDEA BEHIND THE WARPED TEXT IN THE INNER SPREADS OF THE MAGAZINE WAS THE FACT THAT NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE ABOUT WORLD ISSUES SUCH AS CLIMATE CHANGE SO WHO CARES IF THE TYPOGRAPHY ISN’T LEGIBLE.
