  • A common everyday symbol, the traffic cone speaks its own urban language. We are conditioned by traffic cones that tell us very plainly where we can’t go; typically cones linked together are perceived as barriers. But when transformed into organic, segmented creatures they come to life, showing where you CAN go. Repurposing the cone as a symbol means showing connectivity and freedom of movement, inspiring new connections and pathways. Environmentally, cone worms in their various forms and behaviours represent urbanism, community, connectivity and biologically improvisational DNA.
