Galvanised steel, automotive enamel

Dimensions variable (poles 4 x 4 x 270 cm, overall area 8.1 x 8.1 metres)

In neat rows on a lawn stand one hundred poles, each painted in broad bands of colour. Shifting visual patterns and optical effects are generated as the viewer moves towards and around the forest of pole. The banded poles and their grid formation suggest the work of surveyors. They also evoke a structure perhaps under construction, perhaps in demolition.

Exhibited: Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Award 2001 finalist exhibition, Werribee Park, Vic, March to May 2001
 
Awards: Toll Popular Choice Award 2001
 
Collection: private collector, regional NSW
