Our second project for Foundation 2D requires us to create a visual narrative that expresses a quote from our chosen movie using only symbols, symbols, pictograms, dingbats (ornaments), icons and engravings.
I decided to do it based on the movie Passion of Christ (2014). It feels meaningful to work on something that I am passionate in and to express my feelings towards my religion!
1. Jesus: Peter, could you not watch even one hour with me?
2. Jesus: I am the good shepherd.
3. Satan: Do you really believe that one man can bear the full burden of sin?
4. Mary: Why is this night different from other nights?
The ones that are bolded are recommended by Ms Ina to work on. Her advice was that “This might be a bit of challenge as we are crossing into religion..how to address these with artistic rigour and without being literal..”, which was something that I had to keep in mind throughout the entire process of creating my designs.
Therefore, to prevent this issue from happening, I then thought of icons that represents the narrative, Christ (which is good) and Sin (which is evil).
Some threshold that I tried and experimented with:
I then decided on stick to a single theme (besides the storyline), to express the quote and to really play around with it in order to prevent it from being literal. I then decided on use “games” as a theme.
Here are some game themed stuff that I played with!
