Simon Faithfull Collaboration
Simon Faithfull is an artist who has travelled. He has a fascination with the planet we inhabit and the space that surrounds us. He has devoted much of creative energy to physical and conceptual exploration, documenting his journeys in the form of written and drawn dispatches from far and wide.
His latest artistic endeavour is to travel along the earth's meridian line, from France to Africa. This expedition is in collaboration with the ICIA University of Bath, who commissioned the trip, and who will host a major exhibition of Faithfull's digital drawings and photographs - the exhibition will form the centrepiece to the launch of the University's new £10m Centre for the Arts.
We were lucky enough to contribute to this exhibition by bringing to life the artist's route in the form of a world globe, now on display within the exhibition. This was a collaboration with Weber Industries of London, who we worked with to produce this striking and unusual piece - a black globe featuring the artist's own digital map artwork, lit from within the globe itself.
