moth14face-The Horizons Path

Artist: Sam Tasker

Sponsor: Eurovia Contracting

Location: Lisle Court (rear entrance), Princes Dock Street, HU1 2JX

Hosted by: Places for People

About the Design:
The Horizon’s Path is divided in two by the geographical path taken by Johnson from Croydon to Darwin. The line creates two equal divisions: intense fuchsia to denote women’s equality and liberation for which Amy was a beacon, and bright blue to signify the freedom of the skies. The colours are solid and bold to create an eye-catching structure with a simple design that can easily be understood and appreciated, as it communicates well from a distance. The white elements of the moth are coated in a phosphorescent paint and give a continuous glow at night so that the flight path and eyes can always be seen.
