Tasked with finding a book from the special collections archives in the Providence Public Library, this project was influenced by a book, Cryptomenysis Patefacta by John Falconer, whichs documents the art of secret information, containing demonstrative rules for deciphering all manner of secret writing.
Influenced by the use of language as a code and the exclusive nature of code writing, I created a set of twenty cards, ten codes and ten keys that operate together in order to create a cohesive narrative. The narrative I was interested in telling was that of Iranian women. After the revolution of 1979, women in Iran were forced to conceal themselves once entering public spaces. These cards piece together the laws enforced upon them as well as the act of veiling ones self.
