"There are only two places where people gather from all over the world.  They are United Nation and Olympic Game."

 

The design of Olympics, five interlocking Rings symbolize the concept of unity, friendship and worldwide peace.  In reality, Olympics functions primary as a showcase for the merits of the host country's political and economical system.  Olympics makes us aware of the world we live in.

 

I transformed the original design into three-dimensional objects, extracting the most critical area, forcing to bond together and highlighting where problems occur.
