"Cesspool is an immersive presentation of digital and painted imagery conventionally associated with the feminine. In this show, form and flesh are replicated with abandon and often rendered indistinguishable. The images and their installation address what Mehigan describes as the 'performance anxiety' of a queer femme aesthetic." -An excerpt from VADA.
Design of the artshow's identity takes cues from the title Cesspool - with notions of corrosive liquids and body fluids. Text was designed to 'flow', take shape and interact with images in the layout and intentionally manipulated to create typographic rivers. Clear Spot-UV was used to simulate fluid splashes on the printed matter. A total of 4 different splash patterns 2 for the zine's cover were used.
