Prof Ina suggested that i may want to take a look at Edgar Allan Poe’s poem on Raven. And here is a wonderful site i have found that summarized and deciphered his poem.
Click ME <-link to the poem
There are a few parts where i found it interesting:
Symbols: The raven ->usage of a non-reasoning creature.
The bust of Pallas – goddess of wisdom->raven is smart -> spoke from wisdom
“midnight” & “December” -> symbolise end of something, anticipation of something new, a change to happen
Deciding to do on crows, I have researched on various visuals that were created related to birds
And also to start of the project, i have tried to use monoprint to create some impressions of the birds.
