We were approached by a client to produce a large globe, for a touring exhibition, it had to spin, and have 150 flush mounted lights to represent the companies branches around the World. There was a fixed budget, and not much time. The first problem was the artwork- the exhibition companies graphics department couldn’t do it, so I had to find someone who could. Turns out there are only a few people who can! I found someone in the US- a graphic designer with an interest in Mapthematics- maps and maths- he combined a world land mass graphic with a topical ocean graphic, and divided it up into 24 gores for me to get printed. The 2 PVC domes were made, and the base was designed and engineered, and a slip ring was added to get the power through the revolving axis. My graphic guy dropped the ball so I had to apply the 24 vinyl gore myself. It all ended up looking fabulous, and everyone was happy with the result.
