For my final major project I created an exhibition called the ‘The Science of Superstition.’ From my research around superstition, I found that many people follow irrational beliefs in the age of science with a lack of understanding as to why. The Science of Superstition gives insight into the different behavioural theories that explain why the human mind works in this way. I have used etched styles illustrations as a way to visually explain the various theories.
The etching style is influenced by medical and scientific visuals. The diagrammatic overlays act as a data visual and are influenced by sacred geometry which has connections with belief and religion. The diagrams connect throughout the posters alongside a key, to show the relationship between the behaviours and how they develop into one another. The pop up exhibition would be situated at the Science Museum. To promote the exhibition I created promotional materials such as posters, tickets and keep in touch cards.
