University of Warwick – Alec Finlay

Alec Finlay – Global Oracle
University of Warwick, Coventry

Global Oracle was commissioned by The University of Warwick Art Collection as a permanent installation, consisting of three solitary bee nests modelled on the global Navstar satellite system.

We worked closely with Alec Finlay to determine the correct layout, height and overall aesthetic of the project, with involvement throughout the whole process, from engineering, fabrication, delivery and installation.

The satellites were produced in collaboration with greenwood artist Spencer Jenkins, using traditional thatching techniques.
