Awakening

Disruption Innovation

Jo Coles

During lockdown we have been confined by necessary restrictions, most obviously by a restriction of touch, manifesting in the two-metre distancing rule & a curtailment in our freedom of movement.  I wanted my lantern design to refer to this, & felt the use of arms & legs would be the most appropriate way. For the main body of the lantern I chose an arrow-like shape to represent a change in the direction of ideas, as well as a continuation of bold innovation. Strapped to the base are figures, their feet dangling off the ground & their heads becoming iconic symbols of innovation.
