Safe & Sound Deluxe Edition looks into the past and present of various audiovisual methods of safety and security, and their adaptations into popular and subcultural aesthetic, from early modern times up to our days. The Safe & Sound illustrated text booklet consists of essays by S. Atwan, F. Gallanti, and H. Schwartz, tackling in different manners, respectively, the history of high-visibility clothing, fire regulations in architecture, and the phenomenon of acoustic alarms as seen from a neurologic, sociologic and cultural perspective. The Safe & Sound double-sided poster collection set includes 12 staged photographs realized and paired by Rodeh as a visual complement and counterpoint to the essays.
