Totem Pole – Opening and Closing Ceremony October 2015

I was the lead sculptor in creating a 6 metre high cardboard totem pole commissioned by Walk the Plank arts to celebrate the Rugby World Cup 2015 five nations parade in Exeter.

Each section of the totem pole represents one of the five nations with the chief head on the top of the pole to represent the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Team as the host stadium.

A large scale 3D interactive map with 150 interchangeable weather symbols.

This 8ft sculpture was made from recycled cardboard and sealed with PVA glue. The symbols were also crafted from cardboard and attached using hook and slot system, allowing the symbols to be changed to reflect the weather.

The sculpture was installed in the Exeter Met Office within their foyer area.
