SCAPE
2008
 
stainless steel
1.8-5.5m x 5m x 70m
SCAPE a collaboration with Scottish artist Stephen Hurrel is an outdoor landmark artwork, commissioned by Hydro Consulting, sited at Cambridge so as to be visible from the Tasman Highway. SCAPE is inspired by a long horizontal format, in keeping with the architecture, and the long 'peninsula' nature of the site. This horizontality will communicate a sensitive, as opposed to dominant, relationship to the landscape. In addition to addressing (and having identifiable meaning) for this passing public / traffic from a distance, SCAPE is choreographed to engage the passengers / vehicles on the new road, and the pedestrian Hydro staff and visitors in even closer proximity. SCAPE is designed to exploit the movement of people traveling past the artwork. Given the diverse audiences, aspects and approaches to the work, SCAPE is designed to be simultaneously seen and seen through, framing the landscape and the site from multiple directions. In contradistinction to a wall, SCAPE will perform more as a lattice, offering a certain amount of privacy, and containment, whilst filtering and reflecting light, views, shadow and space. In this way, inspired by the flow and exchange that characterizes symbiotic relationships and sustainability, SCAPE will collaborate with its surrounds.
