Facing a crisis situation can cause a lot of negative emotions. When the crisis situation is prolonged, one forgets about specific problems, and one gets used to living with a particular message. In my project, I try to justify the person’s retreat from certain events. Still, at the same time, I want to remind people and emphasize the importance of those events. In my project, I appose humans and animals crisis situations. I use typography and photographs to create images via the air holes in the animal transport boxes. In this way, I try to understand what the animals “imprisoned” in the boxes endure. It is that way I try to put the viewer in an uncomfortable situation in order to raise people’s awareness.
