Re: The 3 Dreamers
This design was inspired by the student uprising in France in May 1968. Many literary and lyrical works were inspired by these events, including the Beatle's "Revolution", Rolling Stone's "Streetfighting Man" and Bertolucci's film "The 3 dreamers". I wanted this design to capture the calm before the storm....how three students originally passive and dreaming of change are then pushed to the point of becoming active participants of change.
The banner reads "Sois Jeune et Tais Toi" which translates to "Be Young and Shut Up", or 'Be Young and Be Quiet". This was inspired by an actual student poster created for the 1968 French uprising.
The signs "change the world' and 'change the constitution' are inspired by the lyrics in the Beatle's 'Revolution' song. There's a palace in the back of the General which is also influenced by the Beatle's lyrics "The time is right for a palace revolution'.
Hope that makes sense.
