Float


Float, originally uploaded by tonyjonesart.
“Float” A sculpture for the Esplanade Hotel Atrium This art work evolved from a series of drawings exploring shapes from land and sea scapes.There is a rhythm and flow in the way the basic shapes relate to each other. They are designed to overlap and interrelate.The movement is at times imperceptible but seemingly constant. They move subject to the ambient air flow and reward viewing from different levels and locations within the atrium space.The internal ellipses open and close and offer alternative changing dimensions to the forms.The colours were chosen to give life to the space and to add to the animation of the installation.The forms occupy the vast atrium space giving them scope to float and hover in the void.They move in ways we may imagine swimmers underwater, figures in space, clouds and fish in aquaria. It is a work that invites contemplation.

The materials used are aluminium sheet and machined aluminium fittings, toggles and bearings.There are 10 “drops“ 60 elements in total.They are painted with automotive acrylic.An installation by Tony Jones Art Projects Team Tony Jones Liz Cartell Matt Dickmann Ben Jones November 2013

Wayfinders

The three large sculptures on the northern side of the atrium are called "Way-finders" they refer to the navigational markers found at sea. In this case, those off Fremantle.
They are the traffic signs of the ocean and the users are both commercial and recreational. Sailors will recognise them.
They are not literal but draw on the symbolism of marine hardware.
Some are recycled from actual markers some are newly fabricated.
The colours also do not equate to the marine code but are there to indicate the colours commonly used at sea for visibility.
