  • Concept/Cultural Reference:
  • Alive e.V. is a non-profit organization committed to the universal abolition of the death penalty. The task was to develop an attention-getting online campaign that raises awareness about the inhumanity and injustice of the death penalty, and generates donations for the organization
    
    We prove this using the tragic example of Troy Davis. Davis was sentenced to death for the murder of a police officer. He was executed by lethal injection – despite serious doubt about his guilt and worldwide protests.
    
    To protest this injustice, we bring Troy Davis back to life through his handwriting.
    
    Using the letters he wrote from death row, we created a font. This allowed users to protest online against the death penalty in Troy Davis’ original handwriting.
    
    Periodically, the handwritten posts are printed and sent to President Obama at the White House, giving additional weight to the online campaign.
