Zeitgeist 18.06.19 – 05.07.19

West Kent College, Tonbridge – preview night on the 18th 6-8pm

There were many more artwork which I have not included here as they were not set up when I took the pictures.

Artists present in order of floor plan arrangement:

Frederique Jones, Rozenn Gladwell, Phil Woodward, Jenny Dalton, Elaine Leslie, John Stewart, Ginny Legg, Maria Turner, Peps Barkhan, Sonia Griffin, Stephen Pink, Jaq Chase, Sam King

Reflecting on Zeitgeist, I thought I could draw out the geometric shapes associated with the colours of each European flag. These colours, which symbolise and encapsulate the beliefs and cultural identities of the countries they represent, would then be reduced to an arrangement of basic geometric shapes. Since most flags display primary and secondary colours and since the latter are the result of combined primary colours, one can expect that this arrangement would present many repetitions and it would become difficult to identify which flag is which. Instead, the work might evoke more fundamental distinctions about what it means to be human, such as the ability to reflect and solve complex problems.

At this stage, the proposal for this project remains an idea, or rather just an ideal.
