Dust to Dust

It is human nature to think about life and death. This poster is based on T.S Eliot’s poem ‘The Waste Land’, which serves as a reflection about the nature of eternity. The monochromatic visuals play with the idea of light and shadows to set a pensive atmosphere of desolated isolation, and seek to encourage meaningful reflection through visual and verbal thought — about life, death, and the ephemeral inevitability of it all.

 

There is shadow under this red rock,

(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),

And I will show you something different from either

Your shadow at morning striding behind you

Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;

I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
