This evaluation dissects and explores the strategies we used during the workshops to investigate the Seven Deadly Sins and Dante’s Inferno. The sins are; Pride, an excessive belief in one 's own abilities. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.Envy is the desire for others ' traits, status or situation. Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one needs. Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures. Anger is manifested in the individual who hates love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath. Greed is the desire for materialistic wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness. Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work.
Additionally we learnt about “Dante’s Inferno” which tells a story of Dante whose girlfriend had been taken away from him by Lucifer or Satan.Dante then met Virgil a famous poet born before Christ therefore he was stuck in limbo which is not hell or heaven. Dante and Virgil entered the wide gates of Hell and descended through the nine circles.. In each circle they saw sinners being punished for their sins on earth. We also explored William Blake’s poem the Proverbs of Hell including quotes in our narration using it to present the Seven Deadly Sins with accuracy.
For our first workshop we explored and evaluated the use of Still Images and Transitions.
