Beneath GHI 1, 2 and 3 is a series of three small dioramas that take inspiration from what lies below the Gravelly Hill Interchange or as it is commonly known Spaghetti Junction, Birmingham.


Paper, card, gold leaf and perspex.


H: 90mm. W: 230mm. D: 26mm.

Beneath GHI 1

More fantasy than reality. Using a frontal perspective to reimagine the pillars as a rainbow and with gold breaking through at the end.

Beneath GHI 2

Vintage marbled endpaper is used to represent the canal that weaves between the pillars.

Beneath GHI 3

Surprisingly there is much greenery and wildlife that survives underneath the interchange. Here the vision is a forest of pillars.
