Press Room : the act issue 30 – 2004
Spheres signify the human race. Beige is used to show that man is not perfect like white but as close to white as people yearn to be. Sadly, there are people who have been affected by the undesired HIV (red spheres). The smaller red sphere symbolises the young in our society and even they are not spared the virus. There is a larger space around the “red adult” than the “red child”, this shows that our society tends to care for the affected young as they think they are innocent and that the adults deserve to be condemned for their own actions, thus avoiding them. However we should care for those affected equally. For the social stigma to be removed, people should be educated that they would not be affected by just standing next to PWAs. As friends and family members, we should instead stand by them and support their every action.
