UNNatural Parks Project.
Many times, I have come across these clever National Park posters that
designers make that celebrate the natural wonders of each park. Each of them
highlights specific species that live in the park and all these animals seem so
majestic to us as they are not around us every day. This project is a satire as
it explores the natural wonders of our suburbs. The UNNatural Parks we live in
are home to various animal species that we often ignore. There is wonder in these
animals and these posters give praise to those that we have forgotten.
The suburbs that I highlight are places that I have spent time in.
