Static Image Ideas

For my static image I intend to use the theme of manipulation.

I think that I will choose a quotes from somewhere in this passage (probably the first two sentences):

And by how much she strives to do him good
She shall undo her credit with the Moor.
So will I turn her virtue into pitch
And out of her own goodness make the net
That shall enmesh them all.
The image I’m thinking of involves Iago, Desdemona, Cassio and Othello. Desdemona, Cassio and Othello will be chess pieces. Iago will tower over the chessboard and be moving Desdemona and Cassio away from Othello. Desdemona will be reaching out to Othello as she is being forced further away from him.
Othello will be the black king and Cassio will be the white king, while Desdemona will be the white queen. This will show that Iago is using the colour of the three characters as a way to push them apart.
Othello will have his back to Desdemona and his eyes will be green, showing how he is plagued by jealousy due to the manipulation by Iago.
