Mark of Dreams: UNESCO's DREAM Center logo competition

Competition Details


by Victor Ahlm

When contemplating the goal and purpose of the DREAM center I tried to find a simple way of communicating the 5 disciplines integrated in the acronym D.R.E.A.M. To me, the connection was clear. Waves. Dancing; feeling the beat, interacting with music, whether it's only a simple drum or a symphony orchestra, the beat and pace will guide you. The beat is to me a frequency, a wave. Reading is all about seeing the meaning behind words, deciphering symbols and encoding them into something understandable. Using your brain waves. Expression; communication; interaction; It's all made possible through electromagnetic waves or sound waves. Art is about expression through a visual medium. Music would exist without sound waves. The wave is one of the fundamental elements on our planet and it is every child's right to be able to explore and create their on waves and to share them with this world.
