Dione Lee, Scales

Dione Lee, Scales

Dione Lee’s banner design, Scales, explores the tangled relationship between order and chaos in the creation of peace. Presented as a series of digitally-altered cyanotypes, the work juxtaposes human craft and machine generation as a reflection of entropy and control: two fundamental elements of peace and harmony.
