“but we’re the social leper”

This project was influenced by religion and the impact it has on those growing up and living in central Scotland. The project addresses themes of Bigotry, Sectarianism, Politics, Hatred and Belief. I hope to portray an honest telling of the rivalry that still stands between Roman Catholics and Protestants in and around the central belt. I have created this typeset which combines interviews of different beliefs showing the similarity of the stories from each side. Through visual reduction I plan on communicating that we all live the same experiences just viewed from different perspectives. I want the visual representation of ‘what side’ harder to differentiate as the work progresses, only enhancing my perspective and understanding of us beginning and ending as one.
