What’s oldest piece of art work you’ve ever seen? What effect did it have on you?
Remember how the killer was affected by William Blakes’s art in the first Manhunter film with William Petersen or Will Smith’s reaction to the Kandinsky in Six Degrees of Separation or Alan Ruck’s reaction to the art in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
As an exercise:
Imagine your main character is in a museum. What piece of art affects him or her, and what does he or she do in response?
