For this task we had to create a sellable object that would provoke thought in the viewer/buyer. I created 4 different illustrative postcards each marking a major event/milestone in a baby's life, that each had a different message about other children in the world at a similar age in much less fortunate circumstances. It is to provoke thought in whoever reads it as, it is a beautifully illustrated card, and the apparent subject matter is light, for instance a child's 1st birthday, however in small letters on the card, it says "117 out of 1000 babies die in Afghanistan before the age of 1", I thought this would be quite jarring and shocking for whoever reads it.
