Collages to Improve
These collages are part of the board game Divididos: las conversaciones que todos quieren evitar (Divided: the Conversations Everyone Wants to Avoid). I designed the game to facilitate conversations about polarizing topics between people from Latin America living in Florida. Throughout the game, players use the collages to co-create stories that respond to a set of moral dilemas. When putting one collage next to the other, the intersections create new images/collages to reinforce the idea that even though we might have different opinions, we are still able to interact with one another and create something together.
With these collages, I intentionally created visually ambiguous compositions to step away from the use of charged images that might already hold meaning for players (an example of a charged images could be a fetus when discussing about abortion). In the game, this visual ambiguity is central to have more open and receptive conversations.
