Chicago, Illinois (August 2016)
Using a Risk board game, I was inspired by the countries’ outlines as a way to designate the shape of my critters. It utilizes the borders of the countries and continents and redefines them into new characters. The Risk board is from the 1970s, which displays borders and boundaries that are not currently found on global maps. Risk 1 addresses the ugliness of repackaging global conflict as a children’s game.
