LIFE ON MARS?

Life on Mars is a lyric book with the concept of using the lyrics of the song “Life on Mars” by David Bowie, to create an out of this world collage that mirrors the strange lyrics. The use of variety in scale and found imagery creates diversity for the layout. The piece mirrors the weird, and surreal nature of the song. This is something that Bowie did consistently throughout his career. He constantly straddled cultural boundaries, transcending categories to become something else altogether. This lyric book serves as a tribute to the ever-changing icon, David Bowie.
