Dani Bearman - The First Kiss

This piece takes inspiration from recollections around the idea of a first kiss; emotions experienced, particular situations, location and context all contribute to a narrative. The surface graphics of each firework convey an individual story. Although contributors remain ‘anonymous’, it is clear a diverse age range have participated, with both variation and similarities between time periods. Fireworks are transmitters of the spark most anticipate when they kiss their first love; design approach used references the graphic language of standard fireworks from the 1980s.
