SPIRAL LIGHT

A site specific light sculpture that was temporarily installed under the Flemington Bridge for the Moonee Valley Arts Week as part of the “Intersection” project.

Discarded water bottles were collected from the catchment area under the bridge, where they were polluting streams and waterways. This project was a comment on the irony of pollution caused by the consumption of so called “fresh clean water” contained in plastic bottles.┬áThese discarded water bottles were formed into a spiraling solar light that was positioned under the bridge above the polluted stream that reflected back into the water.

The site was a dis-sued and abandoned metropolitan location, that was inhabited by the occasional pedestrian, cyclist, BMX rider or skate boarder. The light revitalized and illuminated the area, making it appear safer at night. It remained at the sight for a month with no damage or deterioration and was a successful community intervention in public space.
