The MAP Collection by Ross Bennett
The MAP Collection came about as part of a project to enable graphic communication. The symbols are all part of an infographic language that I created which is designed to allow cross-cultural communication regardless of language or background. They all represent geographic features (mountains, seas, rivers) or astronomical events (sunrise, sunset, full moon) and can be arranged and re-arranged to create maps.
I am a designer maker who works with a variety of different materials, most often wood, metals, concrete and plastics. I use a wide range of both hand-craft and digital techniques to work sympathetically with the material I am using to create items that are beautiful, useful and are hopefully more than just a superficial object.
