My article of the rising population of spoilt/overindulged children can be presented in various different ways. The fact that the image must be photo real does limit my visions a little but I am still very happy with the structure that I have planned!
I would like to communicate and represent this image in a highly realistic and relatable way. Everyone has seen a child cry/have a tantrum when they have been denied something they want, everyone is familiar with money and everyone knows what the latest gadgets are. I would like to incorporate all of these aspects to create a crystal clear and emotive digitally manipulated image.
What I am envisioning is a young girl (dressed in a bright pink tutu/fairy costume) sitting cross-legged on a monstrous, dark arm chair. The tutu gives a stereotypical representation of a young, contemporary girl.
The room is dark and the child is crying and has a scowled look on her face. She is surrounded by the latest gadgets (iPhone, iPod, laptop etc) and a pool of money sits at her feet. The money will most likely be $20 notes as I think that it is important that the image does not portray too much colour other than the bright pink costume. One of the most important aspects of the image will be the darkness, only outlining the arm chair and child – the background being a mystery.
These images when placed together will effectively and clearly communicate the idea of spoilt children and overindulgence. I want the viewer to immediately know the main idea of the image but still be able to read into it further if they desire.
