Ready? Stamp. Go!
Part of Vital Signs
There are a vast array of images, objects, and tools designed to allow us to travel the world, both physically and imaginatively. Our passport, for example, facilitates entry to foreign countries, while at the same time contains stamps that are a record of places visited and a gateway to our memories of those trips. This podcast considers the design of passports as it relates to our ideas of travel and the ever-changing concept of national identity, through interviews with designer Eddie Opara and travel photographer Kirsten Alana.
