Like beach pebbles on the shoreline, the ‘Imprints of Time’ public artworks are indicative of natural objects inherent to the site and coastline that are moved, changed and imprinted in a variety of ways by both nature and humans. These ‘pebbles’ roll through time and physical space acquiring and expressing environmental and cultural features.
The ‘pebbles’ were created using a GRC forming process that allowed for the incorporation of inlays, imprints and sculpted patterns by hand.
