Project 2 - Design Project
Globalisation: Art + Architecture
In this Interdisciplinary Design Project we were given the challenge of creating an installation art piece related to the ever increasing phenomenon that is globalisation. My artistic installation was a reaction to the constantly sprawling and increasing transport network which allows every corner of the earth to be connected. After finding an interesting branch with seven smaller branches to represent the continents, I began connecting them with brightly coloured wires to represent various transportation modes. Many of the wires are highly strung, pulling branches together; a metaphor for the pressure placed on mass transit systems.
