Description: Public Artwork Illustration Project Management
A series of public artworks were commissioned by the college to inspire students and visitors in a celebration of learning. The work comprises a series of symbolic forms and images, the most prominent of which are large-scale 6 meter tall 3D sculptural profiles that represent growing minds. These are positioned significantly, looking forward and outward in new directions. A backdrop of brightly coloured 2D panels depict a wide range of subject areas, and suggest both the interconnecting pathways of the brain, and the many career options open to students.
The works employ a diversity of materials appropriate to the site, including stainless steel, brushed aluminium, engraved concrete plinths and printed exterior-grade architectural panels.
