A well needed update

What i've been working on for the superstition project. The idea that superstitions are presented as facts. If you believe in a superstition, nothing can waver it, because it is illogical to begin with.

It's turned into an A - U of contradiction; I found two superstitions that contradicted each other for each letter of the alphabet. A is about apples, B is about Bees etc.

I was working on how to visualise the fact that each superstition is like a fragment of "knowedge", but you can't view two contradicting superstitions at the same time.

This turned (after maaany hours in front of illustrator) into these layouts which i screenprinted. Each is a fragment of a letter with the superstition underneath, so that if you overlay them the letter becomes whole but you can't read the contradicting superstitions, which overlap each other.Next step is to print on acetate so that they can be put into a book format.
