Made North Yorkshire in Yellow

In the summer of 2014, the Tour De Francecame to Sheffield. There were many events to celebrate it, one of which was organised by Made North gallery – an exhibition of yellow shirts sporting designs by a wide variety of designers and artists (local and international) – which I exhibited in.
I chose to directly represent the routes that these crazy bike people would be riding, extracting topography data gathered from a mobile phone app that had charted the routes.
Converting raw data into an undulating waveform in illustrator, I then pulled it into 3D using Cinema 4D, in a similar style to that old Joy Division cover, except against bright yellow instead of black.
This was printed onto a shirt and hung in the Made North gallery alongside all the other designs.
