For my fourth and final image, I chose the word ‘code’. I looked into it a bit more and found different types of codes such as a QR code, bar code, etc.
I then had the idea of putting a bar code on a person which refers to human trafficking and how people are sold like they are mere objects. I thought of the kind of setting they would be in and thought of how they portrayed it in movies.
I imagined it as dilapidated rooms and somewhat dirty like it was also used for drug dealings.
This scene from the movie ‘Taken’ was also an ideal background for my image.
I also looked at how a person would look looking off to the side but with a bar code below the nape of their neck.
I ended up with this image at the end and cropped the first background image so that it would suit to my liking. I also added a wash of yellow/white tint over her head to simulate the look of a lightbulb over her shining down.
