Danbo's PonderingsMy aim to show how by using text the context in which an image is perceived changes. By using a small toy character called 'Danbo'. He is a toy from a popular Japanese comic. In the comic a child for what of a better word is having trouble standing up for himself or expressing himself. He wears a cardboard suit to pretend to be a superhero, and in doing so gives himself confidence to stand up for himself. I felt this toy would be ideal for the project as like the child, I am using the toy, as a way of expressing ideas under the illusion of something else, a simple fun toy.
