Driven by the core philosophy of people and community, the artworks incorporate large colourful figurative forms, playful wayfinding and a 30m mural element.
The sculptural elements convey relaxed and calm postures, and a physical engagement with the spaces created within the public areas. Through these activations, the social life of the community is expressed as relaxed and comfortable.
The bold use of colour brings vibrancy to the precinct, while complementing the existing geometric forms within the new library and broader community facility. A pallet of cross culture patterns and colours were developed through a series of workshops which visually weave together to create a unified expression of community and culture.
The artworks also incorporated work from school children through a collaboration with Woodville Primary School. The project was delivered on time for the Council’s Community Open day and Karl Meyer was invited to speak to the crowd about his philosophy behind the artwork and give the community an insight to the process.
