The colour red symbolises two extremes; vulnerability and strength. There’s a constant tug of war between these two in ones mind. The battle between the two can have many meanings. It can look different for everyone. One thing that I as an observer has noticed is that whatever it may mean for someone, each person goes through it. It often seems almost impossible to find a balance between the two. Strength is something that is expected of us, and we’re expected to bury our vulnerabilities.
Red represents strength but at the same time, it represents vulnerability. The red coat symbolises this conflict, and takes you on a journey of a persons constant fight between the two, eventually realising that vulnerability is strength.
