SCAPE, Tasmania, Australia, 2008
SCAPE articulates a cross-section of Tasmanian landscape through 165 highly-polished stainless steel poles arranged over an area of 70m x 4m - framed within galvanised steel edging and blue-metal gravel. It also reflects back the surrounding landscape and highlights the ever-changing ambient light conditions.
SCAPE was commissioned by Hydro Tasmania Consulting for outside their new headquarters in Cambridge, north of Hobart. It was produced in collaboration with Australian artist John Vella. The research, development and design stages were all undertaken via Skype, email and telephone. Final design details were agreed on when the two artists got together in Hobart, Tasmania prior to actual installation.
