BØN541 v2.0 was created for the University of Western Sydney Sculpture Award & Exhibition 2014. It’s constructed from computer motherboards, and braided stainless steel hosepipe over a stainless steel armature.
The work was supported with a material sponsorship by Convoluted Technology Pty Ltd, who supplied the braid.
This work has since been disassembled, and its materials recovered.
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.
Building on the process of Left Hand, this work scales up, while stripping away. Four years, seven months, three weeks and six days worth of prescription medication vials capture time in the form of mass repetition.
Created for the We Love Art fundraiser exhibition for St Vincent’s Hospital’s Xavier Art Space. All works were sold unattributed for a flat rate of $250, raising over $10,000 for the refurbishment of the art display facilities.
