Sculpture by the Sea IV.. Extending the Horizon.



If you are wondering how it is possible to see the Indiana on the left in the pic above and on the right below it's thanks to the incroyable 360 degree angle of 'The Desert Island'. Constructed for Sculpture by the Sea 2018 using timber frames, steel brackets, plywood and glass mirrors it was designed by Dutch architects Gjøde & Partnere Arkitekter.. the ultimate reflection foil.. So worth watching the short video here of the architect explaining the installation plus the bonus of spectacular views over Cottesloe Beach. Definitely going back to take some shots of this one as the sun goes down tonight. Bon weekend, take care and stay safe.. P.s. you can tell how early in the morning I took these shots by the dark shadows..

  4. That is fabulous, Grace! I do worry about birds flying into it though. That is a huge problem here with reflective buildings and windows.

  5. It's a long way to Indiana, I'm going to have to get Mr. Jones. :) Beautiful project and beautiful photos, Grace. This is something that I have a hard time conceiving ...how to people do these things. I know I've asked you that before, but still...
