| SINTLUCAS GRADUATION PROJECT |


Comedy, Rebirth, Rags to Riches, Tragedy, The Quest, Overcoming the Monster, Voyage and Return – these seven plot archetypes can be seen at work everywhere, from global news stories to the smallest interaction Pick three of the seven archetypes and create a static or moving image for each one that tells a story from the modern world. Look to unexpected places, nd the dramatic in the seemingly banal, the emotion and humanity that underlies the routine of our daily lives. In a fast- moving, digital world, having the time and space to unfold a story is a luxury not often available. How do you distil the essence of it down to something that can be captured in a single moment? I choose to visualise four instead of three to have an even number. The plot lines I picked are comedy, tragedy, voyage & return and overcoming the monster. The use of everyday objects representing the chosen storylines paired with flowers that have a language of their own and these too have a hidden meaning connecting them to the plot lines.

Comedy | The first image represents the comedy plot line. For this I chose to use an ice cream cone and happy colours as they both stand for joy, a feeling just like a comedy would give the viewer. The same goes for the Gerbera Daisies that have been used.

Tragedy | A gun might not be the most obvious everyday object, but everyone associates it with a tragic event because little good can come from it. The Daffodils coming out of it have a meaning of jealousy and distrust, paring perfectly with the tragicness of the gun.

Overcoming the Monster | This final image can be interpolated in two ways, overcoming a drug addiction or overcoming physical symptoms. The flowers used carry the hidden meaning of overcoming and being a 'hero'.

Voyage & Return | A backpack is one of the most common used everyday objects and by everyone associated with travel, or in this case a voyage. The flowers used, Deutzia's, Gypsophila and carnation all represent adventure and travel in some way.
