‘The Lucinda Project’ – Centenary of Federation sculpture, Mosman Council 2001
Sculpture Symposium, South Sydney Council 1998 – First Prize – ‘Sea of Bags’
In line with the aims of the festival theme, ‘Ocean of Colours’, this sculpture achieved a number of things – by using normally discarded shopping bags rigged up as ‘wind socks’, these multi-coloured. symbols of consumerism filled and billowed according to the vagaries of the local wind conditions and so resembled a moving ‘Ocean of Colours’. The bags themselves were collected from various shops and supermarkets in the area relfecting the consumer, ethnic and social layering of the community. The bags are symbolic of the millions of such items buried in the land-fill, in the 1970s – a sort of representative resurrection commemorating our disregard for anonymous consumer servicables.
