We are absolutely STOKED to announce the winner of the 2017 Deeper Space theme design... none other than Sarah Barber!
You may remember Sarah's work from the Deep Space 2016 design, as she was also the winner of last year's contest. We're so pleased she can have another chance to showcase her incredible work to the Seed community.
This is what Sarah had to say about her inspiration for this year's design:
"The idea is that Deep space exists not only in the sky but also in the darkest corners of the deep ocean - which seemed appropriate due to 2016 Seed's unfortunate flooding incident. This poster represents the Space In Between, the space where we come to celebrate this unique community we reside in. Where nothing and everything exists in its own little place. The design shows a diver falling out of the ocean and into the sky, then back into the ocean - as if looping on itself. It reiterates this idea with the ouroboros symbol which lies behind an upside down/flipped compass - symbolising losing yourself. I wanted to portray the idea of looping and infinity as it was as if Seed was repeating history with the new theme of Deeper Space."
And for the submissions that weren't selected, we'll be showcasing them on site at Burning Seed 2017, so make sure you check them out.
