Two posters for the exhibition are titled IMAGINATION.
‘IMAGINATION’ makes a statement about reconciliation in
terms of national identity in both South Korea and Australia. Presented as breaking news, the posters feature quotes from former national leaders that highlight the potential for unity and reconciliation in their
respective countries. The posters suggest that a paradigm shift is required to
navigate multi-layered identity issues caused by the negative impact of wicked problems. ‘IMAGINATION’ asks if design can play a role in facilitating change and authenticating national identities? It is a complex question with a simple answer provided the political will can meet with the designer’s imagination.
