The Oppression

45 Symbols — I, me, myself

Human flaws are what make a person unique in their own way; at the same time, they also define a person’s weaknesses. The Rorschach test inspired this concept of 45 symbols. The developed system deals with communication under restricted conditions—in this case human flaws, and more specifically weaknesses in a person’s character.

The Concept

The Rorschach test, an inkblot assessment invented by the Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach in 1921, inspired this concept of 45 symbols. The developed system deals with communication under restricted conditions —human flaws, weaknesses in a person’s character. I am the best; I am the worst; I need to have it all; I need to end it all; Don’t get in my way; Don’t blame me; I accept; I refuse; and I do nothing — these statements act as a reminder of our flaws, and the created symbols function as a reminder to question our behavior towards others. Using different mark-making techniques, these symbols are developed with abstraction, reflection, and imagination in mind, similar to our weakness of seeing, understanding and controlling our own flaws.
