Happily Ever After Land
This project was a type of mapping project. I chose
to make a fairy tale map because of the irony of the limitations of
world famous fairy tales and their similarities with each other. As a
little girl, I used to love hearing my favorite fairy tales and dreaming
of being a princess, and thus living the life after meeting a prince.
While this book shows the sarcasm of the same endings in fairy tales,
the guache paintings evokes the feeling of reading a children book.
I limited my selection to Disney fairy tales: Beauty And The Beast, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel.
The respective princesses were indicated by threads and end at the
prince's castle. The left side of the book contains information about
the indications between the color of threads and symbols of the
princesses along with descriptions about the map. The right side shows
the map of the princesses' paths in their life through the use of three
dimensional panoramic paintings.
