The ribbon installation is based on a rainbow theme and links to the pandemic in a variety of ways.
The ribbons flutter in the wind, suggesting the sudden appearance of a stream of butterflies, reflecting the idea of people emerging from their cocoons after lockdown.
From other views the work captures and reflects light in different ways including that of glowing candles.
The ribbons also close up when wet emulating some varieties of flower, almost responding to atmospheric conditions. There are other references also. Please feel free to come and chat about the artwork.
