Survival User Manuals

Research & Publication Design — 2016

        We are gradually becoming more dependent on the technology that has been invented to make our lives easier. We continuously have to (re)learn how to understand the technology behind new products. Survival skills are timeless as they are universal — the knowledge necessary for operating products becomes obsolete as soon as a new product is being introduced. The publications form a series of 4: building shelter, finding water, preserving food and hunting, each one in a different font family. Text from "The SAS Survival Guide by John 'Lofty' Wiseman", Collins gem, published in 1993. Quotes from "Walden; or Life in the Woods" by Henry David Thoreau, published in 1854. Collaboration with Magda Skibinska.
