Sky Pool (2019)
Mirrored acrylic, concrete, EVA foam, silicone, fishing trace
Sky Pool was an installation consisting of a field of floating acrylic mirrors located in the North West Lagoon of the City Botanic Gardens. Drawing inspiration from lily pads, the installation highlighted the natural spaces within the landscape and their intrinsic communal and environmental value, now and into the future. The reflective circles acted as portals that enhanced the water's own reflective qualities by forming a strong connection between the pond and the sky. The circular surfaces broadcasted the surrounding environment, both natural and artificial, providing a new perspective of the gardens.
