Exploring the changing character of Art in Public Space through its relationship to place in a rapidly developing urban setting.
Partnering with Wonderment Walk Victoria, this project examines how re-contextualising celestial maps and images within an earth-bound sculptural form can provide the viewer with a sense of both universal and local space.
Created as a component of an expanded architectural environment, Celestial Ground aims to produce a framework in which community interaction can be an active component of the work's life.
Building on embedded aesthetic knowledge, the project engages the cognitive through an expressed intention of bringing together aesthetic and scientific knowledge in its creation.
In this context, the work further researches possible new meeting points for cognitive and aesthetic understanding through practice-led research in a contemporary context.
Research Team: Dr Geoff Hogg, Dr Colleen Boyle, Grace Leone.
