BUS NO. 142 - URBAN JUNGLE THE JOURNEY INTO THE HEART OF DARKNESS
2nd Year 2nd Semester
New Icon project deals with the renewal, the project conveys the story of colonialism through drawings created by Matt Kish, an artist who illustrated every page of the book
“The Heart of Darkness”. It is a story that portrays the horrors that occurred during the European colonial conquest. During the period that the book describes, slaves were transported from place to place in cargo ships.
Every day we commute on bus number 142, a line that goes through the city’s poorer neighborhoods, all the way to the diamond markets. For us, this bus line is a modern cargo ship- buses who take people who are practically “slaves,” who to this day still work in order to serve the higher classes.
This project I created in duo and reached the finals of the BIAAF 2020.
