Greer Taylor - transition - Sculpture by the Sea 2012
galleries :: | |

Sculpture by the Sea is an annual exhibition installed along the coastal walk from Bondi to Tamarama


This work holds 2 transparent funnels, one rounded edged turned down towards the earth, the other square edged facing upward to the sky… one form transitions into the other through the intentional holding of a small but powerful lens… The relationship of square to round a comment about the relationship between the build world – the straight edges of our world and the natural world that functions through ongoing cycles (the circle). Can we learn to bring eth circular world into the human-made built world?

The roundness of the earth becomes an horizon, holding the sun in anticipation of day… We are ever connected to change.
