Using a classic banned publication, redesign and create a visual narrative that corresponds to a current issue in today’s society.
The Rouse, my take on the classic novel The Awakening by Kate Chopin, was created as a way to push back against a misogynistic society and to showcase feminism. To me, the premises of The Awakening include reclaiming female sexuality and being an independent woman. Pink is a color that society connects to females, and because of this fact, I decided to use it as the focal color throughout this book. The black and white images with pink highlights that are noticed while flipping through were used to connect modern feminist issues with those present in the nineteenth century.
