Congratulations this week to Anonymous for their Shakespeare quote!

A conversation between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.


House of Cards, Season 4, Episode 2, 11:38

MACBETH: Strange things I have in head, that will to hand;
Which must be acted ere they may be scann’d.
LADY MACBETH: You lack the season of all natures, sleep.

– Shakespeare, Macbeth

Title: Opposite

Description: Is there ever more distance between two intimates than when they are sitting on opposite sides of a bargaining table? The discomfort between Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife Claire (Robin Wright) has reached its climax. Their once close relationship has become a mere formality, driven by pure protocol and personal power play. The vertical line down the center of the image divides and separates each into their own space. Is this the end for them?

Next piece up tomorrow! Keep tabs on the project and contest at the project website here, or review the project over at the previous post here.
