Corpus Ripples

Featuring Kings College Chapel, Great St Mary’s Church, Hobson’s Conduit, and the Corpus Clock, Corpus Ripples reinterprets Cambridge University Architecture into a contemporary ethereal setting.

Originally completed in 1614, Hobson’s Conduit brought fresh water to the Market fountain in the centre of the Market Place in Cambridge. Redeveloped in 1855, a Gothic revival gabled fountain was erected and the original structure of Hobson’s Conduit was moved to the corner of Lensfield Road.

After standing for nearly 100 years, most of the Gothic fountain was unfortunately demolished in 1953.

Corpus Ripples features the time-eating Corpus clock mounted on Hobson’s Conduit; a long-forgotten piece of Cambridge’s gothic past meets a contemporary statement piece. The closed, concentric Labyrinth circles echo the gold disc design of the clock and the unstoppable ripples of time.


David Bennison

Graduating in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art, David Bennison’s development as a full-time British artist has remained firmly focused on the multi-compositional possibilities of curvilinear perspective where initially, compositions were created to translate dream meanings and symbology into visual narratives for analysis and interpretation. Currently, David’s work mostly explores ethereal imagery interweaved with metaphors and existential narratives to create intangible compositions that connect and leap from one canvas to the next. Obvious inspirations to David’s work have included the architectural drawings of Piranesi, graphic artist M.C. Escher, Illustrator Paul Hess and local artist and printmaker Glynn Thomas. David has produced various commissions for private and commercial clients from 2007 to present.
