Scanimations, character collage, initial project development
Combining fonts and fortune-telling, The Workhouse created a series of tarot cards exploring society's obsession with 'the unknown' for an issue of Wayward Arts Magazine (Issue 2, No.6).
Each card profiles a role of the tarot and is represented by a typeface that embodies the characteristics and symbolism of the tarot. A unique character was crafted for each card to capture the soul and personality of the tarot it represents. A symbol on the back of the cards links to the tarot – a scanimation that brings it to life. An acetate lens accompanies the cards and interacts with the symbols, animating and bringing each card to life. The twelve cards are housed and sealed in a case that opens to reveal the twelve houses of the tarot.*
