Title: Spin

Keywords: transformation, industry, history

Description: This entire collage is centered on a safe buoy that appeared near the river in the Canary Wharf area, which used to be the docks. This safe buoy thus symbolizes the past of Canary Wharlf. Currently, this area is full of skyscrapers, which are predominantly featured in the upper section of this collage. On the lower section of the collage are lower bodies of walking people. These people are mainly upper middle class working men in the Canary Wharf area, as now this area has been regenerated into business district, full of residential housing, offices and shopping malls. The idea of ‘spin’ represents the historic transformation of the Canary Wharf area, from the dock area to a vibrant business district. Furthermore, the spin also captures the sense of rush in the community as businessmen and women were walking swiftly during their lunchtime.
