Visual Influences

  1. 1. Visual Influences Hannah Rocha-Leite
  2. 2.  A distant and dark island on a choppy sea Speaks of isolation Distance from society Journey across water can represent sleep, or death.
  3. 3.  Layers of meaning placed one on top of the other Sewn together haphazardly to create a patchwork of ideas and images – like a dream.
  4. 4.  Richly coloured, patterned fabrics Associated with wealth and opulence Worn to breaking point, it can show how hard times have become.
  5. 5.  Books are associated with wisdom and knowledge For old books this is especially the case Spellbooks, sources of arcane and secret knowledge are a trope found in stories across the world.
  6. 6.  A landscape that seems nonsensical to others, but with it’s own internal logic.
  7. 7.  Following the same theme as the Escher drawing Dali’s works are associated with dreams With surreal landscapes And with nonsensical inhabitants.
  8. 8.  An image of Miranda seeing the shipwreck from shore The hazy, iridescent colours speak of the dream-like quality of the island.
  9. 9.  Again the colours of a dreamscape show in this image. The figure speaks of isolation The dress recalls other eras in it’s shape, in it’s long train.
