"as each individual person confronts the world anew and seeks to grasp the vastness of the globe…fundamental questions arise: who are we, how does where we live help define us, and to what extent are we bound by our corporeal and terrestrial attachments?" Denis Cosgrove, Apollo’s Eye: A Cultural Geography of the Globe

Globe is a collaborative filmic and sculptural project developed by Janetka Platun, Leverhulme artist in residence in Geography and Drama at Queen Mary University London. Globe explores questions of home and migration in East London, challenging perceptions of home territory and geographical boundaries. Globe relates to the local and the global, questioning ideas of who falls inside and outside, them and us.
