The Crucible

 

THE CRUCIBLE

I redesigned the play, The Crucible, by Arthur Miller.  Throughout the play, I created illustrations depicting the themes important to each act. I wanted to reference the era in which the play takes place while introducing modern aesthetics, like the cut paper collage with found photographs, layered engravings, and overlaid color blocks. Also, since reputation was such a main theme in The Crucible, I chose to never fully show a character’s face in an illustration. Most of my photographs are pulled from the 1950s.  They create a compelling juxtaposition with the content of the play because I am using images from a time where women were hypersexualized to represent the women of a puritanical society.
