Mappings is a sculptural installation on the theme of scientific exploration, discovery, astronomy and creation of maps, charts and globes. The centre-point is a large rotating globe, onto which an uninterrupted automatic drawing is created from harnessing the harmonic movements of two independent pendulums. The whole installation alludes to models of moving planetary bodies in space where our relationship to our Earth becomes more evident as we realise that it is the gravitational force of the earth that is the creator of the complex mappings on the revolving globe. Our earth’s forces are used to create an evolving image of itse

Mappings was one of the pieces included in Balint’s Tracing Time show at Canary Wharf in 2015.
