Taylah Rasmussen, 17, Blenheim, collaboration with Amy Bain.
The idea of the picture is that the girl is looking at the mirror and seeing herself for who she is rather than the words that have been spoken over her.
The theme of 'we are more than you see' hopefully will encourage youth to start looking for the best in themselves.
The 298 Art Group, various ages, Christchurch.
The photocopied hands could represent many things - the pressures put on youth to move in a certain direction or hands put up as a barrier. One of the students felt they showed how youth can help each other and shows give and take. 'Youth have a lot to offer'. The different lettering styles have all been hand designed by the students alongside the pictorial elements. The water lines are a direct link to the deep water/unseen depths reference. The students, however, wanted to show that their heads are above the water mark. A determination to swim, not sink.
Desiree Bajo, 22, Wellington.
The theme "We are more than you see" is perfect for this diverse country of New Zealand. I chose the image of this group of young people who are smiling and bonding with each other which represents the youth who gives color to the society. The set of hands represents unity -- all of us in this together having each other's back in whatever circumstance might happen. We are more than just a young person.
