Never Alone Throne Wayne Z Hudson
steel, powder coat
390 x 140 x 190 cm
was the first piece to catch my eye
Silence # 1.2 Pimpisa Tinpalit
wooden doors, rope
180 x 600 x 600 cm
I feel it is my duty as an artist to find harmony between the moments of absence
In the Grey of Daybreak
Koichi Ishino
stainless steel, granite
230 x 200 x 200 cm
Ouroboros Charlie Trivers
carved laminated eco ply, eucalypt offcuts
350 x 100 x 100 cm
‘Ouroboros’ is an ancient infinity symbol of constant rebirth and renewal. This sculpture is carved and constructed out of timber, responsibly sourced and recycled. Metaphorically the sculpture materially is carbon stored and given a new cycle of life.

2030 Sam Hopkins
aluminium
580 x 430 x 353 cm
A sight that will soon be all too familiar; a looming skeleton of this once great life giver, now destroyed by the lives it had supported. By 2030 the threat of climate change to ecosystems and the bioclimatic limit of trees will be irreversible.
Capture and Store
Stephen King
siver top stringy bark, blue gum
500 x 300 x 300 cm
A hurricane raged through my district and tore down a million trees. Trees have been taking carbon out of the atmosphere and storing it away since life began. Any significant tree loss counts. “Capture and Store” is a memorial.
Eclipse Lucy Barker
salvaged electrical cables, steel, nickel, cement, hebel block
215 x 125 x 125 cm
One body moves into the shadow of another – E-waste is painstakingly reassembled, designed to spin on its own axis and meet the sky.

Transience Cave Urban
bamboo
400 x 800 x 1600 cm
love how these large woven domes nestle in the landscape so lightly & sustainably, they give me hopeSculpture by the Sea

    I’ll vote for In the Grey of Daybreak. Its placement feels nearly surreal in its perfection
