A; we were tasked to produce a “pocket provocation” which could be anything of any form, shape or nature as long as it provoked.
With the rest of my work so far being very serious, I thought I would take advantage of this and have some fun with it, and if a piece of paper calling you a prick in big bold letters doesn’t provoke you, I don’t know what will.
With my interest in print and publication, I have made this little leaflet titled “Prick Points”. The leaflet is effectively a score card which scores people on how bad their attitude is to the environment, ah yes just because it’s covered with willies doesn’t mean it’s completely daft!
A lot of people don’t know that their bad habits seriously impact negatively on the environment, while other people just don’t care! One action equals one point, and one point equals one sticker next to someone’s name, the more stickers you have against your name, the more of a prick you are.
The provocation was going to be riso graphed to match the rest of the work but unfortunately I ran out of time, the provocation includes a A5 double sided leaflet, sticker sheet of prick points, and a bellend band to keep them all together.
B; After getting some feedback, I developed Prick Points into a more formal information leaflet that you would see at the doctors and similar places.
Said leaflets purpose is to aid the diagnosis of “Scelerisque Persona Disorder”. A fictional disorder with the latin term relating to pollution. The principle of the contents is similar to Prick Points, it’s aesthetic has changed to help re-contextualise the piece of print.
