Rolls-Royce has commissioned artist Mohammed Kazem to create a unique sculpture for the Rolls-Royce Art Program. Set to be introduced later this year, the sculpture will be made of metal and will demonstrate Kazem's interest in using latitude and longitude coordinates in his work. The company declined to elaborate but said the artist recently visited the Rolls-Royce factory in Goodwood and mapped out the localities of craftspeople using GPS. These coordinates will be represented on the sculpture as a stack of "data points melted together to form an abstract shape."

Set to be introduced later this year, the sculpture will be made of metal and will demonstrate Kazem's interest in using latitude and longitude coordinates in his work.  The company declined to elaborate but said the artist recently visited the Rolls-Royce factory in Goodwood and mapped out the localities of craftspeople using GPS.  These coordinates will be represented on the sculpture as a stack of "data points melted together to form an abstract shape."

That's not much to go on but the sculpture will be unveiled alongside a bespoke Rolls-Royce Wraith.  The model will be equipped with a starlight headliner that displays the same coordinates as the sculpture.

In a statement, Kazem said "It gives me great pride to be the first ever Emirati artist selected by such an historic and iconic brand as Rolls-Royce to be a part of their Art Program. As an artist, a big part of my work is finding the right inspiration that can develop into an artistic expression, and Rolls-Royce is a brand that is full of inspiration from its rich heritage to the Bespoke craftsmanship throughout its build process."
