'These posters are a collection of drawings of the motorway's junctions. I was interested in the graceful curves and shapes of the junctions and found that there are huge variations. Reading up on the history of motorways I found it very interesting that although they are generally seen as ugly and devoid of any aesthetic consideration, in fact their shape is carefully considered to give drivers a safe and visually stimulating experience.
