From the 1824 Vagrancy act to today’s Stop and Search policies, this project, immaculately researched by On The Record, shines a light on the racism that permeates British laws and police.
A forensic fly-through a world of redacted documents exploring 'the thin blue line', we designed and animated this timeline using 2.5D animation techniques to pack a huge amount of content into a short sequence. Using real Government documents and archive photography from the Bishopsgate Institute, this piece was created to raising awareness, educate and support the campaign.
The wider project included a website, illustration, pamphlets, oral interviews, spoken word poetry and a documentary film produced by Patrice Etienne.
