image memory journey of 'peppermint candy'
poster for main character of movie. 594x841mm.
the film ‘peppermint candy’ addresses one man’s troubled history, and how he laments his lost innocence. this lamentation takes the form of a journey through the past 20 years of his life. through this work, i tried to express the main character’s journey through the use of lines. his life-journey leaves a linear trace, and the events in this journey become connected, thus, creating links. the lines represent direction, and the meaning of his progress. for the lines which represent each event and emotional state, i have borrowed ideas from traffic lanes and sign-boards. in this, i tried to emphasize that the movie ran backward through time. the traffic lanes and sign-boards send a message of guidance, safety, danger, direction, warning, speed, and caution.
