Of Memory (Sculpture by the Sea 2010)

Exhibited in Sculpture by the Sea Sydney in 2009 and chosen as a finalist in the UWS Art Priize and Exhibition in 2010.

Of memory is trying to connect two points in the landscape. The work is straining against its material limitations, reaching out from one fixed point in an unsupported, cantilevered span. It responds to an idea of landscape and our individual capacities for risk and commitment.

Despite its apparent delicacy, so finely balanced that it will move in a breeze, the work is engineered to support considerable load, and will comfortably support the weight of people sitting on it. When used in this manner, the work will gently oscillate, delivering a kinetic experience to the viewer.
