Vol 15 No 1 Autumn 1995
The works photographed and included in this publication, are two of ten interactive sculptures made for Artful Park in Centennial Park in Sydney, 1994.
You and the View: 10 Eye Exercises
The works were situated in a variety of constructed natural landscapes within the park.
Each work consisted of an object on a pole which invited the viewer to look through, in order to see the landscape through a variety of "lens".
Each pole had a poem attached, which included a number of English idioms.
The combination created a journey from which the viewer would travel, in a circuit leading them through a series of changing physical landscapes as juxtaposed with a series of changing imaginative internal landscapes.
Inspired by a year long journey I had just returned from, it alludes to how one experiences place through a variety of internal lenses such that both external and internal places play a part in how we experience life.
