The nerd in me has been looking forward to this since my mom called to tell me about it last November. Now the designer in me is just as excited thanks to the beautiful work of Montreal’s Bleublancrouge. Their work on the Star Wars Identities exhibit poster that has recently begun popping up across the country. Opening in Montreal, on April 19 the exhibit then makes it’s way to Edmonton on October 27. According to the smarty-pants at Blueblancrouge the posters and the exhibit are meant to explore the theme of personal identity both in ourselves and in the characters that inhabit the Star Wars universe. They achieve this by building six portraits that represent extremely different Star Wars personas, ones that in some ways we can all identify with. The poster series includes: Yoda, Darth Vader, Amidala, C-3PO, Boba Fett and a Stormtrooper.
Bleublancrouge created the exhibit’s stunning marquee inkblot Vader video as well. It’s definitely worth a watch once you’re done nerding out over the posters.
