One week Project – Little Red Riding Hood adaptation.

Hooded Youth AKA Little Red Riding Hood

Taking this image as the starting point of our one week project, we first decided what the image connotes.

  • Due to mediation, hooded youths carry connotations of being violent and disrespectful to the general public.
  • In the eyes of the public, they are feared.
  • Intimidating, associated with braking the law, crime and so on.
  • This of course is generated by what is referred to as a moral panic.

These connotations helped us to adapt the original narrative of red riding hood to something slightly more contemporary. We then created a flow chart to demonstrate this narrative as shown below.
