This project uses the narrative elements in Carroll's original story to create a card-based game, similar to games like Cards Against Humanity and Once Upon A Time. In this game, players use the elements of Carroll's story to rearrange, build, and create new stories to explain what has upset the Queen of Hearts this time in Wonderland.
A Loopy Conversation
This project uses the narrative text where Alice is having a conversation with the Caterpillar. At some point, the conversation ends at where the Caterpillar begans by asking Alice, ‘Who are you?’ This conversation topic, questioning Alice’s identity, is a recurring one throughout the Carroll's story.
In a similar light, I looped the pronouns of the conversation to connote the repeated topic of identity. From here, I gradually shifted type set rules, in terms of sizing, tracking, leading and weights. These shifts created new forms leading to new interpretations of the repeated conversation. These shifts influenced the creation of an accordion book that begins and ends the same way.
Lost Down The Rabbit Hole
This project is a series of compositions using the narrative text at the beginning of the Carroll's story. In the story, Alice chases a talking rabbit and falls down a rabbit hole. It is here that Alice’s reality is lost to her as she travels to Wonderland. In a similar light, I removed and reconstructed pieces of the text to connote Alice's descent.
