Dialogue structure

by Marta Strumidlo

I used an illustration of architectural structure with three columns representing dialogue, mutual understanding and cooperation between cultures, three fundamental elements of peace. Concentrating on white background the viewer will notice figure-ground organisation, where in fact these columns are created by white profile faces indicating dialogue among and between cultures. This dialogue and coexistence of cultures transmit the weight of the dome which stands for our responsibility for the progress of humankind. The steps leading to this building resemble the image of place common different cultures - the temple, inviting to come closer and contribute to the great purpose so important for all people.
