'Off the Grid' Silverlink Point

Watkinson, Cate and Rennie, Colin (2016) 'Off the Grid' Silverlink Point. [Artefact]

Item Type: Artefact


The sculpture represents a visual response to the name Silverlink Point.
The piece will be made in planes of powder coated shining steel, linking together and set at different angles to reflect the sky and the elements as the weather and the lighting conditions change.
The work has been designed using cutting edge digital technology to create a futuristic tower 5 metres in height which will act as a beacon, heralding the entrance to the Silverlink Point site. The sculpture will be lit at night and shine out across the landscape acting as a stand out landmark for the region.
