Our Second Home
Our Second Home is a publication based on my own personal opinions of Mars colonisation. During the time this publication was created, in late 2018, Mars colonisation was a widely discussed topic in the news which contributed to my opinions of it. Mars colonisation is still a controversial topic, with many people still being both for and against it. The publication focuses on three pros and three cons of it, and explains the reasons behind them. There is no wrong or right answer to whether it is right, or wrong – it is a far more nuanced topic.
The publication itself is split into two sections; ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ with three conceptual points being made in each section. Each point includes an image beside it that represents it. The aesthetic quality of the publication reflects the conventions of a futuristic humanity that has reached out into the stars.
