Segmentation

This work is part of the online exhibition 'Magellan's Voyage of Discovery' by Liverpool Book Art

 

Magellan’s circumnavigation of the earth was driven by religious, commercial and personal interests. This journey and its discoveries contributed to the transition from archaic globalisation to our contemporary globalised world. Resources, human and material, from across the planet have fuelled and assisted these economic, technological and creative developments. From imperialism to digital dominance the structure, materials and binding of ‘Segmentation’ portray the complex attitudes that civilisation has towards the world’s natural and human resources.
