This project was part of "Tall Tales" an exhibition designs by first-year MFA Design: Designer as Author + Entrepreneur students of the School of Visual Arts (SVA) Curated by Kevin O'Callaghan.
The exhibit reimagines the classic totem pole within the context of a modern story and design approach.
In my case I choose to build a totem pole that represents some of the deadliest dictators of the 20th century. The quest for absolute power drove these men at any cost–murder, oppression, brutality–to attain their personal interests and ambitions. I present these dictators as they would appear on a traditional totem pole.
