︎︎︎ Brief: Designing the journey of a protagonist and exploring the emotive qualities of landscape along its pathway by stitching a story out of it.
The protagonist, a 27 year old young girl, wakes up in a middle of a forest, wounded and dazed. Realizes she fell off the main road because of her accident. Surrounded by darkness, all she can see is a yellow headlight of the car wrecked above and some moonlight. How will the landscape be percieved in such a situation? While she walks back to the car, what emotive qualities would the landscape generate? The moon hiding behind the sky, that sheds light on the huge oaks, the wind wailing between distorted trunks, carrying the sickly stink of wood rot, the briars getting caught in the skirt, the damp leaves grimming her skin and the darkness that eats up all the green from the landscape, leaving everything desaturated.
