Dragonflies

Title:Dragonflies

Location:Western Landscape Feature of Orion Town Centre
Address:1 Main Street

Curatorial Rationale: In sustainable development initiatives such as Orion Town Centre, ecological, economic and social relations feed into and support each other, evolving strong and healthy communities. Public art, like sustainability itself, has key relational value, connecting people and place. The family of tortoises and the swarm of dragonflies evoke the life-cycles of nature and appeal to a childs sense of discovery and play. These creatures are highly adaptive, living on both land and water, symbolizing deep and rich connections to the environment.

The artwork addresses the sustainable parameters of the curatorial rational: the sculptures are cast in 100% recycled aluminium.

It is expected the work will delight, captivate and create dialogue among its audience. It is expected that "Huddle" will provoke diverse interpretations. Each person's response to the work will vary depending on their previous exposure to art.

The dynamic placement of the artwork entices and intrigues locals and visitors alike as they navigate their way along the two thoroughfares. The artwork is symbolic and metaphoric and the viewer may not fully grasp it on first reading. It can be read simply or could be viewed on a more conceptual level for a deeper meaning. The pieces may engage immediately at the visual level or more subtly at the psychological level. Each piece should at least provoke a pleasurable human response and enrich the lives of those who come into contact with them.
