This concept looks to visualize this years theme; the fact that a journey and a destination are one and the same. That they are two parts of a whole and can lead to a neverending loop, or journey, of discovery. A journey leads to a destination, that might lead to a new journey, and so on. Maps can serve as metaphors as well as the literal object many times necessary to embark on and complete a journey. Credits
