380 Docklands Drive
Client: Fitzpatrick Investments
Artist: Jonathan Jones
Brecknock Consulting was engaged by Fitzpatrick Investments in 2009, to curate and project manage the VicUrban percent for art requirement, for their commercial building, designed by architectural firm Bates Smart, in the Melbourne Docklands Waterfront City precinct. The vision for the public art component was an artwork that would capture the address as well as providing a dramatic foyer experience and entry statement. Salt/Fresh, the selected artwork by artist Jonathan Jones is an installation constructed from timber planks and tubes of LED lighting. The minimalist geometric form is a layered composition in white – white painted timber on a white wall, bathed in white light. This immersive visual environment, at once both stark and subtle, where light and shade take on rich textural properties. The work’s title Salt/Fresh refers to this meeting and mixing of the material and the immaterial, the dissolving of form and the fertility of flux. Photo credit VicUrban.
