Other ways to look at the Olympics rings

The iconic Olympics rings are everywhere we look. But what happens when we look at them a different way. That’s what artist Gustavo Souza did in his project Oceaniaeuropeamericaasiaafrica. Souza explains, “The rings represent healthy competition and union, but we know the world isn’t perfect. Maybe understanding the differences is the first step to try to make things more equal.” So Souza uses the colors of the continents and plays with the size of the rings, so they illustrate the differences and disparities among the world’s regions.

Oceania is blue. Europe is black, the Americas are red, Africa is yellow and Asia is green.
