2010 is UNESCO's year of international rapprochement. In basic terms, a year for mending cultural and personal ties, for opening dialogues and communication between countries. My first entry is a simple abstraction of shapes (cultures) merging and melding forming various shades and shapes as they do. The second is a figurative play of the eternity symbol and the handshake suggesting continued negotiations and meeting of minds. the third is the year 2010 itself comprised of speech bubbles containing various languages exclaiming positive or polite phrases.
