Colour and ‘Angel Islington: Parallel Worlds’
"In the same place different people occupy different worlds with their own viewpoints and experiences and minimal interaction. Canal boat living; walking along the towpath while absorbed in social media; expensive apartments alien to adjacent council tenants; tech workers in their converted factory offices linked to an economic network elsewhere; all in their own bubbles. Over-arching issues like climate change break through but aren't noticed." - Rory Brooke
Rory has used colour in this picture to differentiate between and emphasise these different worlds, each one mostly limited to one set of tones, but with small patches of linking colour from the other bubbles.
