Medal: Fate or Chance

“Choices are made in brief seconds and paid for in the time that remains.” Paolo Giordano

 

This project explores the topic of decision making which is a response to news about fatal car accident by teenage drivers. The crumpled paper texture symbolises "what's done cannot be undon", while the other side is craved with a seizing hand that illustrates one's free will to choose and decide our own future. The context of a medal helps to show the contrasting nature of having given choices and the fate that lies beyond the choice. Perhaps decision making is something as heavy as the medal itself.
