A GLIMMER OF HOPE
by Alice Nyong, illustrator
From the previous gif of ‘idea flicker’ I played upon that first little spark of a thought. So fresh, that it’s before it even becomes an idea, it’s more a surge of energy, a glint, a flare, a spark. It’s rawness, it’s electricity, before it’s properly formed, but you feel the flutter of something. I built upon that feeling and applied it to it’s rawest form within nature, and that materialised into a bolt of lightning through thick cloud. An image with strong connotations, it’s biblical. It’s that glimmer of hope in between the fog of day-to-day life. The moment of clarity that brings about something magical.
