The Commodities series

The “Commodities series” focuses on the transportation of everyday products and objects across distances and borders.   At the heart of the “Commodities” is the notion that high speed travel and transport networks have fundamentally changed the way humans relate to space and time, and that perceptions of distance between points in space have shortened.  The artworks in “the Commodities” feature the symbols of contemporary long and short haul transport networks from land freight to maritime routes, airline systems and services. 

 

There are cargo ships, planes, trains and stationary goods in containers awaiting collection; visual symbols of objects and people in continuous motion across very busy international spaces actively participating in the evolving process of globalisation.
