Concept Project: ‘National Grid’
The National Grid is a system that divides Great Britain into squares of cartographic information. Reality-Survey aims to use the National Grid as a basis for 'National Grid'; a 1:1 scale sample of Great Britain. 'National Grid' will be a national project constructed of local samples. It will serve the nation's understanding of itself. It will provide a historic document of our environment. It will reveal the stark differences and un-noticed beauty of this island, in a perfect scale, unfiltered, unmasked, and without conscious decision.
Using every land based intersection, of which there are 24, of the 100Km National Grid, a 2x2 metre survey will be undertaken. These intersections lie mostly in the countryside, but there are exceptions; some lay in urban areas, including a school playground, a garden, and right next to an A road. One lies directly on a cliff side in Norfolk and one lies on a remote Scottish island.
Upon completion the 24 surveys will slot together to form a rough outline of Great Britain.
'Sample Series' (a non-cartographic application of the method).
