THIS AMERICAN LIFE
CONCEPT: STORY THROUGH COLLAGE SYMBOLISM:
From the beginning my main goal was to have a powerful a piece that showed the pain and violation of sexual harassment without showing it literally in the sequence. I thought that it would be a good idea to use a small amount of misdirect with montage to make a unique, and interesting sequence. Collage seemed like a good way to give a sense of unease like with a collage murder letter. Along with the childlike aspect of collage to represents Don’s Manipulation, and control of the situation by being the women’s boss. The primary color scheme was used to offer a similar effect, the effect of “dark playfulness”. It is disorganized to represent the confusion that each women had towards their boss, what they should do, and the emotions they had. The collage images themselves are symbolic representations of the emotions and experiences of the women.
