Creating a statement from my design is something that I want to bring to the forefront of my concept.
I wanted to replicate Banksy and Ai Weiwei’s work taking my own approach using recognised symbolic imagery that contrasts with the refugee camps and what the media shows of them – highlighting the crisis that they are part of.
I have made visuals of each “intervention”or “stage”to illustrate what might happen:
- Escaping war
- Division of families
Entry signs – welcome to the “holiday home”
- Boarding transport
Boarding a boat?
Overcrowded space – not with people but with objects?
- Getting through Europe
Taking on the role of an ordinary “holiday camp” activity – representing a border check
