MA Graphic Communication


"Using graphic design as the medium, the fundamental aim of this research was to contribute to the visual understanding of society's propensity to lie, and equally its inability to accurately detect deceit in others. The central messages are:

"We All Lie: It is fundamentally ingrained in our nature and a necessary part of social structure.

"Yet We Are All Quick to Judge: No matter how much we lie individually, there is a social paradox that forces us to negatively label those who are deemed to be liars.

"This project has been structured into two imbricating layers: an online confessional platform,, and an art book, The Big Book of Bullshit.

"I created artistic representations of deception, to visually persuade the viewer into making judgments pertaining to the artwork's legitimacy; thus encouraging an investigation of preconceived notions of deception and forcing a dialogue of questioning and examination."
