The Fairest of Them All

During my final year of BA Design at Goldsmiths, I wrote my dissertation about skin whitening culture and its socio-political influences. In my dissertation, I explore skin whitening culture from a Malaysian context and the harmful influence this culture has had on the population. In addition to producing this detailed body of research, I also typeset, bound, and self-published the final work. The final outcome was an off-size A5 publication with 7,800 words consisting of academic research. The work also features a mini booklet attached at the end with images of ephemera I collected from the Wellcome Collection Museum as part of primary research. The choice of using a flexible mirror for the cover was to represent the theme of distorted body image. It forced readers to be confronted with their own body image when first picking up the book. Secondly, it is also a play on the dissertation title – The Fairest of Them All – which ties into notions of narratives that I explore further in a graphic novel project following the dissertation.
