A fresh take on the traditional and more recognized jack-o-lantern.

The proposal for this year's Halloween Parade is a community driven event where participants come together to create lanterns using a selection of shapes, following preset systems. The idea was to use this as an opportunity to further museum's interaction with public and allowing them to showcase the adaptability and resourcefulness of design.
