Worn Down By Words

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Graphic Design / Posters / 2023

Due to their subtle, repetitive nature, microaggressions have been referred to as a ‘death by a thousand papercuts’. A travelling art exhibit called Worn Down by Words was created to highlight the harmful impact of these slights and raise awareness for The Micropedia, the first encyclopedia of microaggressions. Taking cues from an exhibition experience, the art was accompanied by plaques with The Micropedia’s mission statement and a QR code leading visitors to the encyclopedia for further learning. The aim to create a safer society for all by getting The Micropedia in as many hands as possible.
