Painted aluminium, stainless steel cables and fittings, galvanised steel support poles and anchor cables

Dimensions variable (overall area 15 x 35 metres, height 9.5 metres)

Suspended above the roadway at the southern entry to the town, Cloud consists of a network of stainless steel cables incorporating 27 windvane panels. The windvanes sensitively adjust to changes in wind direction. Each panel is painted in two colours, one on each face. The colours are drawn from the local skyscape – on one side are the bruised blues of thunderclouds and on the other the rosier colours of sunrise/set. This airy structure hovers overhead forming a unique version of a traditional archway.

Location: Howitt Street, Warragul

Commissioner: Baw Baw Shire Council

Budget: $130,000
