Our piece documents the sharing of information and how community collaboration can create change. It symbolises action, teamwork and education in groups of people for progression for the greater good. The linking of people, depicted by simple facial features expresses unity and involvement, communicating a feeling of belonging, trust and harmony. The eyes and mouth colliding and fusing, display education; learning and teaching discovery. We take in information and share it within our communities to make a difference. When people join together, change can be created more easily. Movements like Occupy Wall Street went from New York to all around the world within days, which created social and economic progress. Our work uses simple line work and colour to draw attention to the meaning and symbolism with symmetry and simplicity.
