When Marijke van Warmerdam was commissioned to make a badge for the IKON Gallery in Birmingham, she based her design on the spots from a cup and saucer she has used for a mobile with rotating photos called Take a break. She compares a working day to a holiday and so she made two badges representing both kinds of days. The printed light reflections on each badge suggest that the circular form is an air bubble. KvG
