I've been developing the idea of two banners even further and I now think I've found a way to make it more interesting. There have been two major additions: interaction with the public and progression of the art piece from two blank canvases to something entirely different during a timespan of a couple of weeks. This progression is divided into three main stages:
1. Confrontation - Seeing the contrast
2. Questioning - Provoking thoughts
3. Unification - Balancing the scale
The theme of the work revolves strongly around the subject of different social statuses that the opposite canals have. I'll post again a bit more in-depth during the progression of the piece and explain these stages even further.
