Characters in Othello: Colors and Shapes

The color and shape I picked for Othello are silver and the indifferent shape. I thought of it for a while and this indifferent shape fits othello perfectly for numerous factors. Like Othello this is the outsider of the group because it has no real shape.

The shape’s physical appearance is various from the rest, similar to Othello is given that he’s a moor and has a different skin tone.

Towards completion of the third act Othello begins to lose his stern confidence front and his real insecurities come out. He shows that he feels not restricted and proper enough for the whites. Likewise his age is another huge insecurity that he feels when Desdemona’s loyalty remains in concern. This associates with the indifferent shape of the group trying to front like its a shape when actually it’s not. Silver finest describes Othello with the following characteristics honorable, chivalrous, and romantic. These are displayed when Othello charm’s desdemona with his story and by his high ranking in the venetian army.

I selected lavender, pink, and a circle to represent Desdemona’s character. Desdemona represents perfection in the story with her appearances and appearance. This is why the circle with no rough edges and a perfectly drawn out figure fits Desdemona perfectly. Desdemona is entirely the reverse of Othello she comes from a prominent and ideal family. While Othello has actually matured without any silver spoon, (even thou paradoxically thats his color), he was raised into slavery and the army. These trials and catastrophes Othello overcame shaped him into the shape he is. Also like the within the circle Desdemona’s character lacks depth and seems somewhat empty. Some character characteristics Desdemona does display screen are love for Othello when his life story moves her to the point of tears. She shows compassion by saying she will do whatever her fan asks of her and simply can not say no to him. She likewise comes off as a romantic when she disobeys her daddy to be with her lover and runs off.

The shapes and colors that best opt for Cassio are yellow and a triangle. Cassio is a triangle in my opinion because he has a high stature which means everything to him. Like the stature of an equilateral triangle in mathematics and if the triangle loses one angle it messes up the whole triangle. This is sort of like how Cassio screwed up once in Othello’s eyes and lost everything. Yellow best fits Cassios’s character which is happy go lucky flirt. He was optimistic throughout the whole story and was really people orientated, perhaps even too much. this was his most significant character defect and his downfall thanks to Iago’s wicked scheming.

Iago is the most wicked character in the play hands down, however he may likewise be the smartest. I chose dark blue, black, and a square to represent him. Black is the color that represents evil which Iago is for turing everyone against each other and making evil conniving strategies behind there back. Even if he’s wicked does not indicate he’s not clever. Iago is very intelligent he single handedly played everybody. Like a square Iago appears things from every angle (front back and side to side) and has complete vision. So dark blue which suggests intelligent, responsible, and self reliant seemingly fits him.

If I had to select colors and a shape to represent me I would select the very same shape as Othello, beige and mint green. Although I didn’t pick the very same shape as Othello for the very same factors. My reasoning behind my option for that shape are I do not actually ever plan much out, I bend and simply go with the flow. Also this shape is different from the rest which how I see myself, different from the rest. My colors represent me an the way I am which is more peaceful and laid back than most people. These colors likewise fit my character. Which I think about kind hearted and peaceful even though I cant always make everybody happy I constantly try.
