This is Reconfigure, a work which takes the thematic elements of earlier steel and valve works like “This?“, and translates them into different materials.
The work consists of two parts – a chain structure made out of oiled recycled wood, and a length of recycled ferry mooring rope.
For a permanent installation, the chain could be attached close to a ceiling via the stainless steel eye-nuts, rather than the temporary truss structure in these images. It can be reshaped side to side, and the droppers adjusted up to 3 metres, allowing the sculpture to be adapted to suit whatever space it’s in.
- Oiled reclaimed wood.
- Reclaimed Sydney Ferry mooring rope.
- Stainless Steel cable & fittings.
- Dimensions variable. Approximately 9.9m long x 3m high.
- Available to order in custom sizes.
Here are some examples of possible alternate configurations for the work. In this case, the mooring loop was taken off the end of the rope. Left on, the work could effectively capture the moment of the thrown mooring line in the air.
