One Tiny Drop Changes Everything

For this project, I created an artistic book on Elizabeth Holmes, who founded Theranos. She became a billionaire through deceptive blood testing claims, but her lies were eventually exposed, nullifying her wealth.

I replaced the blood drop with the word "extraordinary" so that it feels less like a murder scene. "Extraordinary" is the word that Holmes used to describe her company and her goal. At the back of each page, I extracted one word that best describes what she was doing during a specific time. Then I arranged all the pages chronologically, from a small drop to a huge dark red spot, and finally disappeared.
