66 tonnes of rainbow..



Visitors to Fremantle, city of artists, are now greeted by a fabulous new dynamic artwork sitting high in Beach Reserve overlooking the harbour. Described as 'big, bold and very Freo' it was created by Perth artist Marcus Canning and weighs in at 66 tonnes. The 9mt high 19 mt long 'rainbow' was constructed using recycled sea containers. If you would like to see the structural logistics of a project as weighty as this check it out here. It really is a photographers dream and I can see myself taking many more shots from different vantage points!  


Below in their original form sailing into the harbour :) Did this week slip by as quickly for you as it did for me ? Happy Friday, take care and stay safe...

  4. oooo I love this gigantic rainbow! What a great use for the old shipping containers.
    regarding the hip.... not too bad now, a bit twingey (is that a real word?) but I'm walking without a cane today, and I see the surgeon for the final visit next week. The secret to recovery is to do the excersises every day without fail!!!!!!

  9. This really is incredible. That took some engineering to put it all together. And, of course the colors are fantastic.

  11. Ah, at least this isn't an Hanjin container ship. I understand that company is in receivership.
