Emma Biggs: Pattern for Democracy
2008 | mosaic | Cabot Place (interior) | Art Map reference: 26
Emma Biggs’ floor mosaic for the refurbished retail space in Cabot Place, Pattern for Democracy, is a contemporary take on a traditional geometrical floor.
Instead of striving for machine-like precision, elements of the design vary in colour, form and even direction, the differences combining to create a harmonious whole, much like the way we as individuals can harness our variety to create a benign society. A second, smaller roundel is located at the entrance from Cabot Square.
