Launched as part of Gravity Feilds online festival. Taking inspiration from local boy Sir Issac Newton, we looked at the expierments made during his own lockdown of 1660’s when he returned to his family home at Woolsthorpe Manor to avoid the plague.
During this time he was able to demonstrate that white light is actually made up of several different colours and he used a prism to split sun into different colours of the rainbow to prove his theory, initally noticing five: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and Violet.
The idea was to create five flags one in each of the five colours. We invited people to take a photograph that was predominantly one of those five colours, to look at texture and a sense of what makes up their home, school and work enviroments. Emailing photos to us enabling us to make up a patchwork design for each flag.
The finished flags will be shown all around the district for the next two years and will also feature as part of the next Gravity Feilds Festival in 2022.
Photographs were exhibited online through the projects own website www.creative-colour.co.uk and @skflags on Instagram.
