Six sculptural elements and sound environment. Steel, paint, sound-environment equipment
The “Wormholes” are a series of sculptural play elements that reference the idea of time travel through wormholes. An immersive sound environment was produced that simulated the varied histories of the site. The artist worked with musicians and elders of the Nunukul Yuggera people to bring a rich original language, music and lore element to the sound scape. Other aspects of the sites audial history were also sourced and simulated. These included sounds from the original primeval forest (birds, insects, wind etc), logging, shipping, the nearby church, the school and navy yards. The sculptural forms where designed to act as a site of physical negotiations and tactile exploration with the sound of the sites history being absorbed aurally. The sculptural elements are certified as a playground.
