The End Is Near

"For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." Genesis 3:19

dust. is a publication I spent this past semester building from the ground up about the apocalypse as rebirth, calling upon the old "ashes to ashes, dust to dust" homage. It's content consists of many different writings, interviews, and even songs about the apocalypse as it pertains to nuclear, biblical, and astrological ends.

Heavy stuff, I know. It does, however, take a suprising turn by introducing content about regeneration, and being able to rise from the ashes, preaching the cyclical idea that what we see as an end, becomes a new beginning.

The process was intriguing as we started with three visual interests to generate ideas for subject matter, and both formal and conceptual design decisions. My three? Kachina dolls, 70s computer technology, and medical diagrams. Evident? I think so, but you can be the judge.
