Frankston Freeway Sculpture Failure

I've thought about this for a little while. So much of what we do as artists never sees the light of day, especially our failed efforts in big competitive public commissions. The images on this page, come from my submission for the Southern Way (near Frankston) McClelland Gallery Freeway Sculpture competition, won by Dean Colls with his large ram's skull recently shown in the Herald- Sun.

The pictures on this page show a work that was to be a self contained and totally relocatable, solar powered museum that contained one perfectly lit carved marble sculpture. I like this idea a lot and feel that it is an optimistic statement that encourages people to consider sustainability.
