Plakat Dorian Gray / Poster picture of Dorian Gray

Plakat Dorian Gray

Discipline: Communication

Plakat Dorian Gray

Discipline: Communication

The posters depict the three actresses in a super-symmetric portrait. Since antiquity, likenesses in this style have been considered quintessentially “beautiful”. As a digital rendition, the pictures acquire a disturbing and subtly lifeless quality that makes them seem grotesque. The images are set against a sterile white background, and upon them, a haptic, sculptured typography meanders in black. It recalls wrinkles, cuts and injected substances, winding in fine, tight coils reminiscent of DNA, spirals, threads and plastic surgery, impressions that also apply to and are applied in cosmetic procedures.
