In this bachelor thesis I will deal with a very complex but also interesting thematic which is that of transition as change, movement, journey. This theme is present as a source of inspiration, constant reflection, and in my visual creation. In fact, I reflected before, during, and after the creative process on the transition that takes place in life, due to the passing of time, through experiences. I contemplated more "women situation" both in the society and in personal life. Besides, I used the character of "Ophelia" in Shakespeare as one example of transition. As mentioned above, this theme of travel, change, is also present in my visual work. In fact, in this research, I studied the journey, the flow between two media: photography and charcoal. Since the transition between two media contains countless aspects, I found it stimulating to focus my study on interpretation. In this dissertation I mean this word as the reinterpretation of a work made by an artist. I believe interpretation is definable as the iinstance from the original source. The interpretative process itself is a journey, because a movement from the original occurs and the artwork acquires new characteristics. I started this research with a psychological difficulty which made it impossible for me to distance myself as an artist from the initial source and from a realistic approach. This inner force prevented me from revisiting the work in a freer and personal way. The thematic of the journey is present once again here, in my movement towards a more detached and free creative practice in search to a new visual expression. I therefore developed the following research question: How can interpretation create a new visual expression during the journey between two media, while I reflect on the very concept of transition? Considering my own photographs as a starting point, I will interpret them with charcoal drawing as main technique, in order to create a new personal visual expression. The goal is to research how I create distance from the original source while reflecting on the concept of transition itself.
