Just a creative and thought provoking area centred around the idea of contrasts – visual, language, historical and so on.

Black and White
The appropriate starting point being one of the ultimate contrasts – black and white…which can actually be used on so many levels – including language and, as here, visually. You can’t combine the two elements of a basic contrast, by nature, they are different, sometimes opposing, sometimes complimenting.
