Cinematic Spaces: Metropole Influence Map 1

Based on the excerpt below, I came out with the Influence Map of the city that my character was set in. With what is written and what I imagine the city in a bird's eye view and the street of it, I went on the research for images. In other parts of the book, there was a description of the traffic and the pedestrians were stuck in a bottleneck suggesting that the streets are narrow. What I focused on when researching for the images are the architectural side of the city because it was foreign to the character. While at it, I was also looking at the lighting because I imagined it to be dark, misty and gloomy but with a little bit of sunlight to lift the mood of a busy city life.

  1. Hey Ayunie,

    It's great to see you feeling your way into this world. One of the things about this book is certainly how 'intense' and emotionalised all the descriptions are - everything feels very fraught and a bit feverish - there's almost too much of this city for comfort! I would definitely think about how you might be able to get this feeling of 'vibration' and 'agitation' into your actual paintings - to almost convey the point-of-view of the book's narrator.
