Music poster i made for Ryuichi Sakamoto & David Sylvian's song 'World Citizen' at Westerdals School of Communication
World Citizen    
We got the task to visualise the electronic music of Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian, 'World Citizen (I won't be disappointed)'. I had the song on repeat and started to do my interpretation of the lyrics. 

My understanding of the song 'world citizen', is a person who (obviously) belongs to the world. He has no country that he can call his home, and often despise certain actions of the nation he comes from. I later read that this song was written by David Sylvian as a protest to the war in Iraq.
I had a picture in my head of a human-like shape who was blinded by the actions of his nation. Who just could not stand by and watch what is happening.
I cut out a cardboard figure and sign (3m wide), and then hung it with ropes between the trees.

The photo was taken with a 30' shutter speed in Ekeberg, Oslo. Just some minor adjustments in photoshop.
