In this project we were told pick a contrasting topic with the word provided and create a poster this displays this contrast e.g. in a gif format.
I was given the topic of love. I felt as though the term ‘abuse’ was contrasting to this topic. In my final product, I included figures of a newly wed couple as i felt this represented an act of ‘love’. In order to contrast this and refer back to my contrasting tem topic of abuse, I included subtle give away signs that a relationship is abusive.
On the second slide of the gif, in contrast to the happy figures of the couple, I added dark bruises on the womans arms, shoulders and chest. Looking closer, i included a blue tear on the face of the figure too represent the emotional side of abuse. Further down the poster, i dropped red paint to symbolise blood.
