The diversity of cultures is represented by the brilliant display of multi-colored yarn strands which come together under the year 2010, symbolic of the rapprochement theme. At the same time the lively strands radiate outwards creating a festive emphasis on the year. At the bottom of the poster are the words “Coming Together” rendered in yarn leading back into the radial pattern above.
I chose to use yarn for it's relation to the idea of tapestry, weaving and fibers, as in a tapestry of cultures, the weaving of relationships, and fibers of society.
