Memories from Great War 1914-18
Identity discs and personal belongings in First World War
Make an art work inspired from First World War. Live brief.
Idea & inspiration: Losing personality in the war. Many of soldiers did not even know why they fight and who exactly they were fighting against. These collected identity discs and personal belongings only have their personality and identities. Personal belongings such as shave knives, watches, brushes, etc., show us how they lived in everyday life in the first world war. Signatures were made by soldier’s hand so every signage has different letterings, sizes and colours. These were important to survive and communicate while they fight.
