Poster design and piece for a collaborative exhibition, inspired by the University of Dundee Archives.
The piece is inspired by the lecture notes from Victorian polymath, Sir Patrick Geddes. Each layer of this interactive object represents a different element of his teachings - beginning with botany, to biology, to town planning, to sociology - and at the centre a small plant, representing Geddes belief that all things revolve around and interconnect with the natural world.
Various materials: papier-mâché, laser cut wood, acrylic paint...
