Week 10: 2012 // Futures Illustration – Freedom of Movement

Sonia Ali's Future by Celine Elliott

Throughout 2012 we are sharing an illustration with you every week to help you to re-imagine the future that you choose. For the tenth week of 2012 , we are sharing Sonia Ali’s Future.

Words by Sonia Ali, artwork by Celine Elliott

Sonia Ali’s Future:

The Future I choose is a global world with freedom of movement, and representation beyond the nation-state as citizen. Moving beyond standing armies.

Artwork by Celine Elliott:

My inspiration came from the idea of how armies marching in columns and planes flying in formation is in complete opposition to the organic movements of people who are free to express themselves and birds swooping and diving in the sky.   I tried to illustrate this contrast through colour and form.
