“Everyone designs who devises courses of action aimed at changing existing situations into preferred one.”
Illuminate is a body of work that consists of two art series, a nightlight lamp series and a hanging lantern series. This project combines a world issue with sculpture and graphic design elements. The overall body of work illustrates the Syrian Refugee crisis and war from a child’s standpoint. Children are often overlooked in this crisis and war and as a way of expressing themselves they have used art. Nightlights light up a space that is dark and they are symbolic of keeping children’s fears at bay. They are a great representation of childhood innocence. Conceptually, the underlying message behind this series is to shed light on an otherwise dark topic. I wanted to take an existing situation and change it into a preferred one.
