Planes, Trains, and Automobiles (a childhood favourite film) are three copper and Perspex brooches. Together they take a journey through the modes of modern transport. Referring in style to the traffic lights, we see on our daily travels. The three brooches are colour coded to portray the wearers possible frame of mind for social interaction. The red car for stop, the yellow train for caution/slow down, and the green plane for go. The plain, train and automobiles colours are also a representation for transport safety performance associated to the mode of transport symbolised on the brooches. Travel safe, take care.
