“Revolution”, from the Latin revolutio meaning “a turn around”, has a variety of meanings. It can mean that an object is revolving, in orbit or in a circular course, around an axis or centre. It can be the time taken for the single completion of an orbit of rotation. It can refer to a cyclic recurrence. It can also mean a complete change or great reversal of conditions, a turning upside down, a fundamental reconstruction. Finally, it can also mean the forcible action by a nation to substitute a new ruler or system of government.

Craft Nova Scotia challenged our members to create works exploring the concept and meaning of ‘revolution’, and the 22 works chosen by our panel of jurors range across the many meanings of the word from the French Revolution to the #metoo movement, from personal revolutions to the pit head wheels of industrial Cape Breton
