The installation is designed to honour those who have lost their lives, but also to allow everyone to take a moment to contemplate what we have been through and to think about loved ones.

Confetti Exhibition

We all have our own personality traits to make us unique. When we're with friends or family and one member is missing, the group feels out of balance because that person isn't there to bring their own individual quirk.

Each petal is different to the next but without every one of them, the flower can't exist as a whole.
