Phantom of the Opera Postcards

Photography
Experimental Design
Analog to Digital

Problem Statement:
Using analogous process and changing colors only using limited photo tools in Photoshop, create an abstract design of an existing play using paper or other materials. Design a set of three 4.25 x 6” postcards and 2-color back. Each postcard should use images you take as foundation for the design, but optional to add additional text, symbols, and images. 

Visual Strategy
The broadway musical I chose to interpret was Phantom of the Opera, an all time classic of love, betrayal, and redemption. To reflect the turbulent passion, darkness,  and struggle of a love triangle between the main characters, I wanted the graphics to focus on the romantic tension between the Phantom and Christine Daae. It took many attempts, but most of the pieces show a delicate balance with a beautiful twist as all the mediums are blended together.

Mediums:
food dye
dish detergent
water
light box
