Benjamin Young – Respondez S'il Vous Plait

Following one individual's life as it takes a chaotic downfall through the recession under the idea of 'RSVP'.

The information is conveyed using hand rendered typography, taking inspiration from the 18th century, where the phrase 'répondez s'il vous plaît,' was first introduced to lead as a narrative. Overprinted on extracts of letters, bills, receipts and other ephemera that would have just been discarded the work collides the 'then with the now' revealing that whilst change may be visually apparent, the way in which we deal with and respond to such matters creates a repetitive pattern through time.
