Narratives With Isolation
Isolation can feel entrapping or freeing.
Narratives With Isolation uses visual metaphors and symbols to create in the viewer's perception and emotions an experience that includes isolation. But isolation is not the whole story — hence narratives with isolation, not narratives about isolation.
The color pallet – basically black and tones of browns – creates an isolation from our vibrant, colorful existence. In some narratives it comes across as warm, friendly sepia tones with positive associations and emotions, maybe like a restored old photo. In other narratives it comes across as desolate and apocalyptic, maybe like an eerie smoke filled sky from a massive wildfire threatening homes and lives.
Synonyms for isolation; solitude, seclusiveness, desolation, detachment, privacy.
