Macbeth Creative Piece-Lisa Kang

     For our English project, we had just finished reading "Macbeth". While reading this book we had to choose from Macbeth or Lady Macbeth as a character that we were going to track their journey. The person I chose was Macbeth. I tracked how gaining more power made Macbeth's relationship with Lady Macbeth change. Our first assignment was to write an essay. The next part was for us to come up with something creative to present.

     For my creative part, I decided that I wanted to make something out of clay. There is a road in my project to show that it is like a journey. The clay models are there to show what is happening in each scene. Along the road, there are signs that have the quotes on them. The rod is to show that we're on a journey. The journey begins in the white section and the color white is used to represent that Macbeth is pure in the beginning and that he still has loyalty in him. The nest would be the blue section, in this scene Macbeth had just finished murdering King Duncan, and his quote was talking about how all the ocean cannot wash the blood clean from his hand but instead he will make it red. I painted this section blue to represent the ocean and there was blood all over, showing that it is turning red. Also Macbeth and Lady Macbeth's hand were covered in blood. The next section is painted red because he is becoming more murderous. Also in this section Lady Macbeth and Macbeth are farther apart from each other showing that their relationship is beginning to change. The next section is grey, and that represents that Macbeth is not completely evil yet but is close to it. The clay model of Lady Macbeth and Macbeth are separated even more in this part because Macbeth never mentions Lady Macbeth at all. Finally, the last section is completely black to show that Macbeth is pure evil. In this scene Lady Macbeth commits suicide and Macbeth only has a few words dedicated to her. I arranged the characters so that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are on opposite sides of the road. Putting them like this shows that their relationship had been split right down the middle because Macbeth no longer cares about her.

     Throughout the journey, it shows that Macbeth used to depend on his wife to steer him into any direction, but once he gained a lot of power, he began to be independent. Over the whole play, Macbeth grew farther away from Lady Macbeth as shown in my creative piece.
