Nothing like a new art piece to stimulate some RA discussion.
ACTPLA’s DA notices include one for a new art piece to be installed next to the footbridge at Emu Bank on Lake Ginninderra.
(To my eye) part sundial, part gyroscope, “Winds of Light” is summed up in the DA as:
…an eight metre high monumental scupture in the form of a totem symbolising the original Indigenous people who inhabited this area.
Peter Blizzard describes his sculpture as an ongoing investigation into ideas and as a response to nature, the environment and the landscape.
The circle and square refer to modern architecture and town planning. The various metallic shapes are personal symbols for water, fluidity, hills, valleys, colour, light, time and place.
Well that about covers everything…
