THE MONOPOLY PROJECT
My final project in Forsbergs school of graphic design: a political Monopoly (in the shape of a poster and wallpainting) telling my own story in Stockholm's housing market.
On this board, I changed the regular Monopoly Stockholm streets for the addresses where I lived in Stockholm during the course of a few years. I lived on all the addresses displayed on this board, around 20 different ones. I moved so often because I rented other peoples' apartments, and usually the contracts were just a few months long.
I was inspired to create this personal-perspective Monopoly as a way of dealing with my frustration with the rules of the housing market game in the city, which were like the law of the jungle.
I won Grafiska Företagens Förbund's award for best final project among design schools in Stockholm in 2010.
And I still have posters left! Email me if you are interested in buying one. Size 50x70cm.
