The artists examined myths, storytelling traditions and representation of natural elements to create a visual statement that encompassed natural, geographic and cultural evolutions. The final design entitled Veil was drawn from the line “the wind becomes the sea becomes the land becomes the veil”. Veil illustrates that statement and draws references to our relationship, debt and growth with the natural world. The abstract work represents a variety of natural forms, forces and movements and a hanging fabric, clock or curtain, symbolic of the evolution of human cultural expression.
