iAM Scope | Develop Public Art Strategy and manage development of public artworks.
The Buranda TOD presented an excellent opportunity to showcase a landmark public artwork as an Entry Statement. The site was chosen to provide the greatest visibility for residents and visitors and is located at the entrance to the site from the Buranda Bus Station. The site has been positioned to draw pedestrians in to the site and activate both retail and public spaces within the site.
DavisThomas’ sculptural response Lightlines draws from the curatorial brief and research into a rich and entwined history of transportation and community that continues to be a constant in Buranda, Brisbane. The conceptual response was influenced by the history of this site through the materiality and visual language of the artwork, whilst the kinetic elements embedded in the artwork are designed to react to the wind, making a unique artwork at the very moment of viewing.
