The illuminated paths of this sculpture suggest flight routes that define the relationships between cities. These trajectories describe the globe in much the same way as the rhombus lines and loxodromes used by seafarers to document the results of their explorations, discoveries, and navigation in days gone by, thus mapping the world. They are routes you have to experience to realize how long they are. The arcs of global motion that Cerith Wyn Evans' drawing depicts in space can be seen from inside the building, but as a luminous sign they can, however, also been seen from outside.
They are most noticeable when the intensity of the outside light decreases and the hectic activity inside the building subsides as the working day comes to an end. You can also potentially see the neon curves from above – when you fly over the building and describe a trajectory yourself.
