Darling Island : Sculpture
PUBLIC ARTWORK ‘PLUMAGE’
Façade of ‘Workplace 6’,
sustainable office building.
With a Bower-bird like activity of salvaging coloured and textured materials off the construction waste heap, Stukel Stone proposed a celebratory façade for a bold and inspired building. Waste from construction would be used as the medium for the artwork. Materials chosen would be suitable for the external environment and safe for its location in the public realm. The materials may have included; form ply, timber, cable trays, CFC, glass, acrylic, mesh, sheet metal, aluminium composites, etc.
To further reduce environmental impact the materials could be shaped and prepared on site to reduce unnecessary transportation in the making of the artwork. No colour or texture need be applied to the scrap material.
The developer Buildcorp’s concern with reducing its environmental impact, not just in the construction but the life of the building is inspired and necessary for a sustainable future. With the re-use of scrap materials, the artwork would have been a visual archive of the construction process and embellished the façade of ‘Work Place 6’ with a bold and celebratory plumage.
