WHITEWASHED

Publication
200mm x 100mm
2019





Whitewashed is a publication about the mis-representation of nostalgia in regard to the public pool in American history. Throughout history the swimming pool has been viewed as a symbol of the American Dream. However, racial discrimination was one of the motives behind the nationwide popularisation of the private pool in America – a phenomenon that sky rocketed in popularity when public pools were desegregated.

                                        



Whitewashed aims to inform the reader of the history that has not been told. The stylised images are printed on paper that dissolves when placed in water, while the pages revealing the true social of the pool are printed on waterproof paper.
