Media Diary Entry: Pacing the Cage

My final print project was to develop a concept based on text of our own choosing. Our goal was to illustrate the text but to make the print stand on its own merit. I chose lyrics by one of my favorite songwriters, Bruce Cockburn. The song is called Pacing the Cage and is one of my all-time favorites. It begins with these lines:

Sunset is an angel weeping
Holding out a bloody sword
No matter how I squint I cannot
Make out what it’s pointing toward
Sometimes you feel like you live too long
Days drip slowly on the page
You catch yourself
Pacing the cage

And here is my visual interpretation:

And here is Bruce Cockburn’s song on YouTube with not so very good photography but it’s worth listening to the song!
