Response to COMMUNITY
Community to me is a group of people with a common interest. The Covid-19 pandemic demonstrated how different communities can work together to achieve a common goal. It also showed how intertwined we are, and that each community network relies on others. The Central tables draw inspiration from my daily commute to Sydney via public transport. They are designed so that each component is reliant on the next, representative of people working together to achieve a common goal.
