I've been working on a new project with our friends at Shozu
. It draws on the concept we used at the Find Me
campaign for XDRTB
where we used map markers to draw an image on an online map.
Since prehistoric times, humans have left their mark on the world around them by creating objects and markings to last the ages - and even perhaps to be seen from the vantage of the stars.
There is a deep human desire to communicate with the mysterious, to leave something of ourselves in time, to make a mark and own a moment...if only to say 'I was here, I lived!'
The designs on the Nazca plains, the Egyptian Pyramids, the Mayan pyramids, crop circles, hill figures and megaliths did just this - and were created with the pinnacle of that era's technologies.
This project will bring people together across the country to create a new kind of Geoglyph
, one that will be created using the technologies available to us now.
If successful, we will have created the largest geoglyph of all time.
If you'd like to take part, please sign up at Britglyph.com
- we go live on the 1st of December and the event runs up until the 15th.
