I was recently commissioned for a public art project to be installed in a new commercial precinct of the Brisbane Airport. While thinking about the concept of flight I started to marvel at the incredible structure and delicacy of the ordinary dandelion and how they shed their seeds on the lightest breeze. The seeds with their 'parachute' feathers at the tip float through the air to find a landing place and start to grow again.
The artwork is being fabricated at UAP now from cast aluminium that are pieced together to create part of a hollow sphere. It is just over 2m in diametre and will be suspended in a walkway that has an eliptical opening. Further developments to come.
