Out of Place
What it means:
not in the proper or usual
location.
Definition:
-the merriam-webster dictionary
- muddled
- topsy-turvy
- in disarray
- like a fish out of water
Synonyms:
- in place
- coherent
- systematic
- accepted
Antonyms:
To me, the theme ‘Out of Place’ is based on perspective. For example, I may see something as out of
place, like a white skittle among a ton of red ones, but they may in fact all taste the same, but I think
they are related, since someone may feel out of place purely because others single them out for it,
and that is an experience that many people, including myself, have felt.
What it means:
to me:
Sometimes i feel out of place because of my ADHD, because the world is (in a way) not built for me,
and that can make me feel like I’m useless. My character will likely do the same thing, and I will try to
show that they feel like they’re useless because they don’t fit in.
Out of Place - the
concept in art
I think an interesting way to explore this concept is to do it with a cartoony
character that just can’t seem to fit in no matter what. This would be a light and
child-friendly way of exploring the concept, as this theme may come with some
very heavy ideas (e.g. discrimination, segregation). I’d like to use colour, tone,
shape, and other artistic elements to show that my character doesn’t fit in, and
that he is out of place.
How I would like to explore
the concept:
Ways it has been explored
/ Artist Research:
Paul Abadilla - The Blue Umbrella
The Blue Umbrella is a short by the animation studio
Pixar, and is directed by Saschka Unseld, but Paul
Abadilla was in charge of the colour and the set
designs.. It follows a blue umbrella who stands out in
a crowd of ordinary, grey umbrellas, and finds his
match with a beautiful red umbrella. I really like how
they use colour to show how the main characters
stand out, and I think I will use this in a slightly more
subtle way in my work related to this topic.

Out of Place - Initial Ideas

  • 2. What it means: not in the proper or usual location. Definition: -the merriam-webster dictionary - muddled - topsy-turvy - in disarray - like a fish out of water Synonyms: - in place - coherent - systematic - accepted Antonyms:
  • 3. To me, the theme ‘Out of Place’ is based on perspective. For example, I may see something as out of place, like a white skittle among a ton of red ones, but they may in fact all taste the same, but I think they are related, since someone may feel out of place purely because others single them out for it, and that is an experience that many people, including myself, have felt.

  • 5. I think an interesting way to explore this concept is to do it with a cartoony character that just can’t seem to fit in no matter what. This would be a light and child-friendly way of exploring the concept, as this theme may come with some very heavy ideas (e.g. discrimination, segregation). I’d like to use colour, tone, shape, and other artistic elements to show that my character doesn’t fit in, and that he is out of place. How I would like to explore the concept:
  • 6.

It follows a blue umbrella who stands out in a crowd of ordinary, grey umbrellas, and finds his match with a beautiful red umbrella. I really like how they use colour to show how the main characters stand out, and I think I will use this in a slightly more subtle way in my work related to this topic.
  • 7. Ways it has been explored / Artist Research: Studio Ghibli - Kiki’s Delivery Service Kiki’s Delivery Service is about Kiki, a 13 year old witch who moves into a new place to help work on her witching skills. She knows nobody, and feels very out of place, but manages to find her way in the world and overcome her challenges. The positive message of the show gives me a feeling that I can do anything I set my heart to, even if the world is built against you. I like that message, and I think I will use it in my work, as I want my character to have a happy ending.
  • 8. Ways it has been explored / Artist Research: Edvard Munch Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was a Norwegian painter who created works such as “The Scream”, “Despair”, and “The Sick Child”. He created art that likely reflected his emotions, as he struggled with fear of abandonment and anxiety in his life. He uses curvy and round lines to present fearful, anxious and sometimes sexual feelings in his work, and I find that quite interesting and would like to use it in my work. His most notable piece of art, “The Scream” (furthest right), was drawn two years after “Despair” (to the left of The Scream), and I think it represents his anxiety developing in his mind after the events depicted in Despair, which likely depicts a panic attack. The way he depicts these emotions, and the way he still thinks about a moment in which he didn’t fit in years after the fact, is very interesting to me, and I hope to explore this in my work.
