I make a letter, a spiritual representative of the family. The reason why I made my project into a letter is to emphasis that their dream is only a wish and never will come true.
The letter is the quotes about the motif of plant and how they reflect to the failure of the family’s dream. Inside the letter I bring the house out of the background to the foreground. On that house, I put a plant, which is represents the family and shows how their dream grows. I draw a big sun and a dried raisin on my cover, try to emphasis how powerful the sun is. In addition, the sun is not the only factor, I put a white cloud on the top of the plant to destroy the subtle balance of the colors and also destroyed the good condition, blocked the sunlight, for the plant to grow. Therefore, although, Mama water the plant every day, the plant still doesn’t grow well. It emphasis the theme of dream, no matter how much effort the family put in, the dream will never come true. Hence, it evokes pathos to the audience. Last but not least, I use the color purple on the house in the background, to represent the deferred dream.
The dreams of the family members are different. There is conflict between them, I show it by the contrasting od the colors, such as the black and white. The quotes reflected how they planned their dreams and little hope that is given by them.
The unity of the picture let it focus on the whole picture and embodies how hope, dream and Plan is related. So, in the whole picture plant in the center with the combination of all other art works, emphasis how the theme of dream is developed through the motif plant and their relationship.
