Green Globe, London 2012
The Green Globe was designed for the atrium of the new Southwark facility of Veolia- the UK’s leading waste management organisation.
I was commissioned, after being chosen as the winner of their competition, to design an installation to be made in recycled materials to represent recycling and eco-awareness.
The Green Globe consists of twenty-five-thousand recycled glass beads, where each bead represents one of the twenty-five-thousand school children who currently populate the borough of Southwark. The beads were individually threaded onto lengths of piano wire and mounted onto large aluminium rings.
The Green Globe, representing a green society and a green World, is minimal and efficient in its construction and consists of only three basic components of glass, aluminium, and stainless steel.
