THE FIFTH QUARTER

THE FIFTH QUARTER

This illustration forms part of a personal project, ‘The Secret Language of Headscarves’, which focuses on areas of Souvenirs and Place.

Dungeness is Britain’s only desert and the site of a nuclear power station, but despite this, is regarded as a place of otherworldly beauty –
the ‘fifth quarter’ of the globe. This scarf attempts to capture the spirit of Dungeness as a place, celebrating it as an unlikely tourist destination.
