The theme was 'Illustrated music'. I went for 'The garden of light' by Isis. Though we had only to illustrate one song, this represents the entire album 'The absence of truth'; but especially the last two songs, "Firdous E Bareen" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ereU4f10IA and "The garden of light" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9sY2Ok7OJI , as they basically have the same theme. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Absence_of_Truth The faces below resemble the "transformation" or "dying" of the drugged future assasin and guide the viewer towards the main picture; which opens up an entire new world/the garden divine. And Hassan's popular teaching, "There is no truth, everything is permitted", applies also here; the viewer may now go on his own journey through the picture and let himself surprise by his own imagination. I went to an abstract approach, because a too figurative way could have become cheesy too easily. Still, i'm not that happy with it, because i had to take out some elements that were in there before... And also i feel that i just scratched the surface of the theoretical aspect of the entire theme; i could easily work another semester on this. Still, it looks awesome on a wall :> Mixed Media.
