The best thing about a globe is that it’s an entry point for everybody. Everybody plays in that world…it’s a community-building tool. (Ron Miriello)
As an employee of MOVA, I’m always drawn to other globes when I see them (it’s hard not to be). Naturally, I was intrigued when I stumbled across the 100 Worlds Project, a collection of interpreted globe sculptures built from materials you would never imagine a globe to be built of – pencils, shoe soles, book pages, steel cables, just to name a few. When I found out that Ron is based in San Diego, I reached out to him and he suggested getting lunch to talk about our globes. It was on a sunny Friday afternoon that my co-worker Tori and I met up with Ron at a local seafood joint.
