A series of undulating linear patterns span the hallways of Level 9 at 2 Riverside Quay. Introducing a dynamism and visual depth akin to the Façade Artwork that wraps around the exterior of the building. Staff are invited to activate the artwork as they move through the surrounding spaces of locker rooms and elevator entrances. The artwork gently shifts from these different vantages, delineating the solid walls of the hallway and entrance points into a multilayered, ephemeral pattern. This work considers the evolving relationship between architecture, place and its inhabitants.
This permanent artwork, North of the Warp, was commissioned by Moreland City Council and created to reflect the distinct geography of Moreland and activate the window void of the Brunswick Town Hall.
The undulating folds of the suspended forms reference the geography of The Melbourne Warp, a gentle northwest-southeast flexure in the land that has over time marked a hinge between these areas, with Moreland located to the North. The slow and constant shifts that have formed this flexure can be seen in the repetitive and ephemeral surface pattern of the artwork; at once solid, yet perpetually changing.
