My photo story is about myself being captured and sent back to the past to change a part of history. The story advances to a point where it shows that history cannot be changed and is determined in the loop of time.
I tried to play with scale for this design as it relates very closely to the story and film itself. Showing Alice in a smaller scale than the mushrooms is of a different perception of how viewers will expect to see a girl watering plants. This will allow them to draw more attention to the artwork.
The swords in this artwork represents fight, war, superiority, overcoming fears. The white and black chess pieces represents the good and evil sides in the world. The sword is also the significant item in the movie that played the evil counterpart. In this artwork, I focused more on contrast and shapes.
This artwork mainly uses implied lines to direct the viewer’s eyes to deliver the message. The direction that the girl is looking, leads to the signboards, which then revolves around the artwork.
This is another version of the same quote, mainly focusing on the words used. By replacing the girl’s legs with tentacles, the idea of movement is brought up. Displaying the tentacles in a messy fashion, the direction of where the girl wants to go is unclear. Hence, bringing across the message.
By using Gestalt, I can show collages of different objects that were shown in the animated film inside a card pyramid, which represents the card soldiers in the film.
The movie that I chose my quotes from is Alice in Wonderland.
Design 01: I knew who I was this morning, but I’ve changed a few times since then
Design 02: I knew who I was this morning, but I’ve changed a few times since then
Design 03: Alice, you cannot live your life to please others. The choice must be yours, because when you step out to face that creature, you will step out alone.
Design 04: Alice, you cannot live your life to please others. The choice must be yours, because when you step out to face that creature, you will step out alone.
Design 05: Where should I go? That depends on where you want to end up
Design 06: Is wonderland really a wonder… When you have nowhere to land…
Here are some source photos that I have referenced from:
I mainly used Photoshop to turn the images to black and white. By using Levels and Threshold, I can control how much contrast I want to create. I created some silhouettes by masking image over other images. I have applied using Golden Ratio, Symmetry, Implied Lines, Contrast and Scale.
