A translucent artwork to brighten the Burton Street façade of the East Sydney Community and Arts Centre. S(w)ing by Turpin + Crawford Studio is literally an artwork at play.
Three giant colourful discs move languidly behind a five metre glass wall which opens up the rehearsal space to the street. The discs glide as their ‘strings’ are pulled below, like the ringing of church bells. As the acrylic discs swing in staggered, intersecting arcs, like out of time pendulums, they throw neon light onto the street.
Turpin + Crawford Studio are specialists in site-specific public art. Their kinetic works create an interface of art, science, nature and the built environment. This duo is behind Windlines at Circular Quay, Halo in Central Park and Tied to Tide in Pyrmont.
