"Wayfinders"

A cluster of sculptures for Sculpture at Bathers 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.
