For this project I wanted to focus on how partial truths can be just as misleading as flat-out lies. This issue has been especially relevant in the current American political climate, where nostalgia for the past has clouded some people's understanding of the past.
What I ended up with is a satirical, tongue in cheek piece about historical revisionism in the United States. Obscuring parts of the images with pixels is one of the most un-subtle ways to go about it. The result is comically inadequate in most cases. I chose to make it a webpage because the internet has been a major factor in the recent shift in views of US history. A webpage also allows for interactivity, which, in this case, means the user has to put . in a little effort and break the rules to see the truth.
I also opted for a plain, simple aesthetic so nothing is competing with the photos. It also ties in with my theme of simplicity as a method to distort the truth.
