Anodised aluminium, powder-coated steel
1500 x 270cm high
This work marks the entrance to Brisbane's principal
arrest court and watch-house and is primarily seen by motorists
from a busy roadway.
The work is designed to 'read' differently depending
on the direction of travel and the emphasis between front and rear
vertical coloured elements changes depending on the position and
intensity of the sun. In this sense, the work, although static is
designed to be dynamic; depending on the viewer's position and the
time of day. The rear vertical coloured elements also address the
inside of the building and are more prominent from the outside at
night when internal lighting changes the character of the screen.
The work speaks of the structure or framework of justice
- the regular pattern of the work is not rigid - and responds to the formal language of the building.
