Concept Development // Making a Statement

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:

STAGE 1

  • Escaping war
  • Chaos
  • Alone
  • Division of families
  • Hope

Entry signs – welcome to the “holiday home”

 

Stage 1

STAGE 2

  • Boarding transport
  • Overcrowding
  • Danger

Boarding a boat?

Overcrowded space – not with people but with objects?

Uncomfortable

Cold

Dark?

Stage 2

STAGE 3

  • Getting through Europe

Border checks

Identity checks

Taking on the role of an ordinary “holiday camp” activity – representing a border check

Stage 3

Stage 3 Interior
