The design works on 2 levels -
Firstly from a distance it is a simple arrangement of spots.
Secondly - when we look closer we see the spots are in fact images representing our planet.
The simple image of our land disappearing under the sea is a reminder for us all of the danger of global warming. It can be understood without using language.
I have alternated East and West views of the planet to emphasise the global nature of the challenge we all face.
