Bound Globes

Back to Rubber

Wrapped with repurposed bicycle inner-tubes, the globes take on new meanings as emphasis shifts from being providers of geographical information to absurd bound objects.  Movement and transit are implied by the rubber’s patina, obtained from the wear and tear of distances traveled.  The valve stems serve as a means of demarcating locations.  However, with the cartographic names and features obscured, the relative position of the demarcated points to one another provides the primary meaning. Each globe has a different theme with what is being demarcated (e.g. the richest and poorest countries in the world or the most dangerous places).
