Description
Summary:This research explores the possibilities of narrating Aesop's fables visually to communicate the story line and the moral content. The primary aim is to transform abstract feelings and emotions of the fables, especially the moral part, to provide an opportunity to the viewers to rethink and redefine their own understanding and perspective about the fables. This is possible as I propose that the moral content of the fable is only fixed at a specific moment in time. I embark on the idea of a transformative journey to discover a narrative voice system that offers several possible perspectives to interpret and narrate the variability of the moral content. The research is informed by the Eastern and Western concepts of Yin and Yang, metaphor and stream of consciousness, which help me to explore and discover the abstract concepts involved in the fables and the moral and transform them into visual elements. The outcome is a series of illustrations presented in a triptych format to put forward a different visual narrative mode.
