BØN541 v3.0 is the third in my BØN541 series, exploring the form of bonsai trees, using recycled & salvaged materials.
This work was created to be a setpiece for the 2018 staging of Rent, the musical, by Matt Ward Entertainment, at QPAC Brisbane. It is the largest work I’ve produced so far, and is constructed primarily from corrugated plastic water pipe, which is suspended using the truss and chain from my 2012 work Reconfigure.
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.
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.
