For the Motionpoems Foundation, Gentleman Scholar created a flowing, painterly interpretation of “Working Order,” a poem by Dora Malech.
Tasked with creating a visual interpretation of a selected poem, our team put a lot of heart and soul into this project. Allowed full creative freedom, we loved running with our imaginations and pushing the envelope with striking hand-painted imagery and hints of psychedelia. The result is an interpretation of Dora Malech’s ‘Working Order’ that takes the viewer on a surreal, exploratory journey into a woman’s introspective psyche.
UPDATE: While we wait for a making-of video, check out the “faking of”:
