Keep On Onninâ€™ is a three-dimensional recreation of a lens flare; the visual phenomenon caught on film that is caused when a sharp light shines on the lens. Described by Hughes as â€˜the ghost that haunts visions of summers pastâ€™, the lens flare has specific nostalgic connotations. It has especial association with the rosetinted optimism of the hippie era when lens flares cast a magical light on films such as Easy Rider 1969, Woodstock 1970 and were a regular feature of album covers.
