The idea is based on love lost (grief or missing friends/ family. On the positive side its about making new connections via the internet /computer games…or chatting to neighbours over garden fences.
The heart also represents the new found time to nurture mind body and soul. I initially designed this with angel wings to represent grief. However bat wings seemed more fitting (source of covid?) They also represent the super heroes found in the nhs/ community helpers.
The heart will stand out a bit and the wings slightly set back. Areas will be decorated with patterns and imagery such as singing birds (have noticed the birds singing much louder since lock down) wild flowers, technology such as computer games, mobiles, bikes, garden fences……

My design is a heart with bat wings, this came about with the love for friends & familiy we have lost through death or from not being able to meet up.
Perfect grid to map out the lantern, & rough chalking out of the design
Lack of space at home. I normally make when everyone is out but due to lock down my family is always with me, I don't have a room to escape to, so can't leave things out. I hope to make in the garden depending on the weather!
I have over come the lack of space by putting up a tent creating a make shift studio space. Its been great for keeping the sun off & todays rain. When I opened up the tent I found a slow worm this morning!
After much distraction from children & animals, I've almost cracked it. Glad to have shade from the tent but it is a bit of a sauna today & I keep laying down which doesn't help!
I thought about symbols which represent communication (electronic) mental health & it started to fall into place. I played around with the bluetooth symbol to create a pattern which goes round the sides.
