"Dystopia, in literature, an often futuristic society that has degraded into a repressive and controlled state, often under the guise of being utopian. Dystopian literature has underlying cautionary tones, warning society that if we continue to live how we do, this will be the consequence. A dystopia, thus, is regarded as a sort of negative utopia and is often characterized by an authoritarian or totaliratian form of government. Dystopias usually feature different kinds of repressive social control systems, a lack or total absence of individual freedoms and expressions and constant states of warfare or violence. Dystopias often explore the concept of humans abusing technology and how humans individually and collectively cope with technology that has evolved too quickly. A dystopian society is also often characterized by widespread poverty and brutal political controls such as a large military-like police."

Concept behind the title
In repressive society, where deprivation and terror has led humans to misery, people are named and counted by numbers. Tough and immoral restrictions have been imposed on everyone and everything.
Is there a chance they can stand and fight for their freedom?
Full process of creating this project lasted around several weeks. It wasn't a constant work. I've put myself into this 2-3 days each week for few hours a day. Below you can see the complete work including detail views and project evolution. I wanted to show you most important stages of work, therefore many steps were skipped to cut the length of case study.
