That Dylan’s songs are inspiring in many levels is proved by the artist Frederique Ash Wirtz, who has made two videos, one depicting Simple Twist Of Fate and another illustrating Lily, Rosemary And The Jack Of Hearts.
Simple Twist Of Fate is a sequence of shadows and shapes approaching each other only to separate subsequently. The video has nicely captured the dreamy transitions between present and past, first person and third person.
Lily, Rosemary And The Jack Of Hearts is a narrative. Frederique has rightfully found it difficult to capture the soul of the whole story in one image. So, she chose to take it literally and create a series of images of selected scenes. Accurately observed and reproduced. Personally, I like the depiction of Rosemary a lot. I’m not sure how I used to imagine Rosemary, but from now onwards this is how I see her.
