Fahrenheit 451 - Redesign
Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel by American writer Ray Bradbury, first published in 1953. The novel presents a future American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" burn any that are found.
By the end of the book, the main character meets a group of renegades that ran away from the regime. They have each memorized books should the day arrive that society comes to an end and is forced to rebuild itself anew. I think this book is still very relevant due to current distressing movements in human society.
My interpretation for the book was to redesign it as a "Rote-Learning" book. Each scene is composed as a different memorization technique such as: Acronyms, Rhymes, Gematria, Hymns, Lyrics, Memory game, Visual and graphic associations, written and spoken texts and more.
