The aim of the project is to recatogorize things. I chose to recatogorize words that associates to people's age in order to question the stereotype we have on age.

In each age group, there are positions, mental states, knowledge, actions etc, that is expected from us. The format of the final pieces were inspired by stamps used in ancient times with side profiles which can show the age group of the person clearly. The word association is circled around them mimicking the stamps as well. These words were chosen specifically because people usually do not associate them with that age group.
