Project Name: Of Memory
Artist: Mark McClelland
Materials: Steel . Aluminium
Dimensions: 3000 x 500mm
Description: Award winning sculptor Mark McClelland's latest work 'of memory' was featured at Sculpture by the Sea, in Mark's Park, Bondi. Constructed from steel plate and bonded with Axolotl Aluminium, the sculpture is a span structure, cantilevered into space from one fixed point
Mark says the work is based around the ideas of risk and commitment. A significant engineering feat, the work is so finely balanced that it moves in a breeze, yet despite this apparent delicacy, is engineered to function as a seat, and will comfortably support the load of people sitting on it. Under this load 'of memory' will oscillate, delivering a kinetic experience to the viewer/user.
