Abstract [en]

 

This report examines my initial interests in nature as a subject and specifically the idea of Wilderness, whereby Wilderness is an illusory concept, a projection of our desires and wilderness is a place undisturbed by humans. I evaluate the influences from my childhood of the book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and National Geographic Magazine on my choice of subject and later, on my storytelling decisions during my Masters Project. I analyse my motives and my process in creating a visual narrative with no accompanying text. A primary objective to my project was to work with the representation of nature and the perceptions of both animals and humans living in a forest. My project's narrative revolves around several key elements or characters: a mother and child, forest animals and the forest landscape. Placing the child in the forested countryside is a way of comparing and contrasting domesticated life with life in the Wilderness. The result is an unpublished picture book for all ages comprised of drawings.
