Heart — anatomy, expressions and visual

  • This is a project about ways of seeing and telling, it’s about representation and interpretation. An exploration of a theme in three different perspectives.
    Heart englobes three distinct works that explores three different facets.
    We can see the heart in many ways, I’ve chosen to represent it by its anatomy, idiomatic expressions and visual representations.
  • Anatomy
    I’ve made illustrations of the inside and outside of the heart. With them I've made a poster where you can see both. The outside it’s in front then by lifting it up you can see the inside.
  • Expressions
    I’ve made illustrations representing in a sarcastic and humoristic way some expressions with the word ‘heart’. At the end of the book there is the solutions of the expressions represented.
  • 1. Bleeding heart
    2. Heart of stone
    3. Heavy heart
    4. Heart of glass
    5. Heart of gold
    6. Cold hands, warm heart
    7. Cold-hearted
    8. Hearts and flowers
    9. Sweetheart
    10. Cross one’s heart and hope to die
    11. Heart is dead set against
    12. Chicken-hearted
    13. Broken heart
    14. Half-hearted

    20. Wear your heart on your sleeve
    21. Heart is in boots
    22. Key to my heart
    23. Have a light heart
