︎︎︎ íris is a graphic project that was built based on the analysis of three films. The Virgin Suicides (1999) by American director Sofia Coppola, Todo sobre Mi Madre (1999) by Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar, and Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain (2001) by French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
After the analysis, the experiment took the form of a zine, which enables to tell short narratives, emphasizing the visual work.
This project was influenced by Dada and Pop art movements, containing paintings experiments using acrylic ink and plastic, food photographs with permanent marker interventions and hand cut collages with watercolor ink interventions.
The zine, which transform into a poster, was inspired by the aesthetic and narrative analysis of the films, becoming a creative foundation for my own visual language. The project tells íris’ story: a mysterious, insecure, introspective and at the same time sensual, insurgent and courageous woman. íris is a reflection of the main characters in the movies, but also, its a reflection of women in the beginning of the twenty-first century.
︎︎︎ All íris’ pieces were printed in Risograph, a print technique that values its flaws and unique colored overlays, the perfect match for this project.
