Creative task: Bring a painting to life

The characters in the film “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” directed by Lech Majewski, following the example of figures from the medieval master’s triptych, engage in a peculiar pantomime and staged intimate scenes. They draw inspiration from situations depicted in the painting, offering their interpretations by copying certain behaviors, props, and moods. In a way, they enter the painting, stepping into the enigmatic world created by Bosch. How about you try a different way of experiencing a work of art? Take screenshots of the most intriguing parts of Bosch’s painting and attempt to add spoken lines to the characters. Feel free to unleash your imagination without any restrictions. What are those flat, naked figures from Bosch’s painting saying to each other? What are they talking about? Are they speaking in verse or prose? Are they talking about mundane things or are they philosophizing? Are they commenting on reality or making plans for the future? What mood accompanies them, positive or pessimistic? Are they gossiping or joking? Are they afraid of something, waiting for something, or indulging in pleasure without thinking about the future? Your task is to add comic-style speech bubbles to Bosch’s characters. Bring the characters to life with dialogues.
