For my final piece in Applied Art and Design, we where given the project Jabberwocky. Jabberwocky is a poem written by Lewis Carroll (writer of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’). In the poem Carroll talks about a boy who is on a journey to find and kill the Jabberwock, however there are no references as to what the Jabberwock even looks like. Most of the words are made up, often being a mixture of words put together, this allows you to interpret the poem however you see fit. My interpretation of the poem was fear and getting over them with the Jabberwock being my ultimate fear.
I decided that each character would represent a different fear, but i didnt want them to be a specific fear because i want the viewers of my work to be able to relate to it and make it personal to them. I made the dolls mostly by hand, and painted to create give the dolls more personality and life and then tied them to this massive tree root.
These photographs were then treated on photoshop and then made into seven posters each one to represent the verses of the poem.
