Disappointed Risk: A Junior Narrative Diptych by Joseph Pressman (2013)
Click to read Artist Statement
In the story that I wrote, my character leaves the security of his own home to fly to another part of the country to meet with someone he found on the internet. My character goes from a continuous life of videogames to being sad and dissapointed in an unfamiliar place. this change is signified in the literal depictions of my character sitting alone in a dark room to being alone and disappointed in an airport. To put together my Diptych I adjusted brightness levels on the photos using the magnetic lasso tool to select an area and filters to adjust the brightness levels. to put the photos next to each other I used the canvas size adjuster to make room for the second photo.
