World, Bedfordshire University
'World' is sited at the University of Bedfordshire's Central Luton campus, sited in the Student building.
It was made from discarded computer components (supplied by Secure IT Recycling). The choice to use a world map was guided by the site, the university being a global place of learning where students come from around the world to learn. The piece plays with topographical references as motherboards are maps made with arteries for information and electricity to travel through. Bedfordshire University prides itself on its computer design and software courses so this material seemed appropriate for the context of the location.
