New Order refers to the ruined remains of ancient Greek architecture. In Sparta Place however, the universally recognised form of the classic Ionic column is constructed from contemporary materials and kitchenalia. An intriguing interplay between past and present is thus set up. From a distance the line of columns suggests the grand architectural scale of the past, while at close quarters the more modest scale of suburban life becomes apparent.

Location: Sparta Lane, Brunswick
