Following on from my ‘Experimenting with glue’ posts the other week, I have got back into my task of re-doing the ‘Tales to change the word’ brief after a short but very sweet trip to London.
I have come up with an action plan, I want to get the reader involved in the process of reading the story in an effort to get them engaged with the characters and the morals of the story. What I’m aiming to do is design the short story into a magazine format that is visually interesting and changes from page to page, this will keep the reader interested because of it’s varied composition and change of pace throughout.
As I have not set myself a time limit for this project I am taking my time on each spread, pushing myself to be a bit more experimental than usual and to try and develop a noticeable style.
Along with the magazine I am going to have a series of posters that use quotes form Marie and the chair in the same style and using the same technique as I used in my ‘Experimenting with glue‘ post. This is to reflect the penultimate sentence of the short story ‘Some say they never existed.’ and it allows the reader to interact with the story by encouraging them to reveal what the posters say.
Stay tuned for updates ….
