TEDx 2021 The Stage
TEDxYouth@CaterhamSchool incorporates a stage de-sign which integrates its theme of “Innovation and Identity” and was the work of Sixth Form pupil Perlie. Utilising a simple stage design with stairs leading to a blank arched door and a chandelier of several light bulbs, my intention is to provide a calming, comforting and visually appealing atmosphere which conveys the theme of the TEDx event and enhances the focus on the speaker. The design has adopted a warm and welcoming atmosphere from the chandelier of several dimmed light bulbs, whilst embracing the theme of innovation by effectively portraying new ideas, creativity, and change. Identity is a concept subject to each individual and it is something that distinguishes ourselves from others.
The white curved staircase leading to a white arched empty door carries connotations of uncertainty which opens up opportunity for interpretation of what it could symbolise. The symbolism behind this design varies from person to person, showing that each individual has an identity that is unique in its own way.
