1913 Final Outcome
My final outcome was a series of etchings depicting the 1913 Epsom Derby, where Emily Davison, militant suffragette threw herself under the kings horse. The event is shrouded in mystery even today, did she mean to die? or was it just a publicity stunt gone wrong?
Rosa Parks- 1913 project idea
My end of year project was to explore ‘1913’. This project was completely open and didn’t have any specific requirements. We could use whatever media, any form of design and any aspect of ‘1913’. Some looked at the idea of ‘100 years ago’ while others looked at 1913 engineering etc. One of my original ideas was to look at Rosa Parks, who was born in 1913. Rosa Parks was a black civil rights campaigner, famous for refusing to give up her seat on the bus to a white person. She started the ‘bus boycott’ and is described as the first lady of black civil rights. I have used the Obama ‘HOPE’ campaign poster here, as without Rosa Parks, it is unlikely Obama would be president now. This was not my final outcome.
