Shifting Skylines was created for Meridians Shanghai 2010: Art & Sound in Public Space – was an international collaboration between RMIT University Melbourne (RMIT), Australia and East China Normal University (ECNU), Shanghai, China to create an installation of urban contemporary public artworks in Shanghai, China for the official Victorian Cultural Program towards Australia’s contribution to Expo 2010 Shanghai China.
Claire Tracey installed small sculptural works from cooking woks, mirrors and small motorised engines that moved to replicate the movement of the sky and literally reflected the sky on their mirrored surfaces.
The exhibiting artists responded to curatorial themes of sustainability by creating artworks from discarded materials gathered from the surrounding environment.
