Arrest this man as a practitioner of black magic!
The conflict depicted here is an internal conflict between Othello and himself. Othello's thoughts about love before suspecting that Desdemona is cheating on him are very different from those after he believes that Desdemona loves another. He feeds himself on these negative thoughts and they start to consume him. This conflict propels the action of the plot. As Othello's trust in Desdemona fades, his internal conflict grows. On page 151, Othello states, "This Iago is extremely honest and good, and he knows a lot about human behavior. If it turns out that she really is running around on me, I'll send her away, even though it'll break my heart. Maybe because I'm black, and I don't have nice manners like courtiers do, or because I'm getting old-but that's not much-She's gone, and I've been cheated on. Oh what a curse marriage is!" The soliloquy of Othello on Act 3,scene 3 reveals how Othello views Desdemona after he has found out that she may possibly be cheating on him. He becomes jealous of her and views her as evil even though she is not. The color black represents darkness, mysteriousness, and evil, which is what Othello sees her as so she is depicted as a black silhouette. Behind Othello, there is a silhouette of Desdemona and Othello holding hands when they first got married. Desdemona is blue because she is loyal to Othello and Othello is red in this silhouette because he has affection for Desdemona. To the right of Othello, there is a figure that represents Othello and he is green because of his envy toward Desdemona. The yellow figure symbolizes Iago because yellow shows friendship and he is doing detective work to help Othello but in reality he is only hurting him. However, in Othello's perspective, Iago is his friend. All the silhouettes that are behind Othello are the personas of people the way that he used to see him.
