Public art, cast aluminum twin leaf gates for Museum Park, Swansea, UK.
Commissioned, as part of Swansea waterfront regeneration scheme, to design and deliver a piece of public art that draws connections between Swansea and its waterfront. The design of the gates evolved out of a community engagement event organised by Freshwest on Swansea beach. During this ‘beach day’ event Freshwest invited the public to draw and make marks and moulds in the sand that were captured in plaster-of-Paris. The casting of these marks and other found objects on the beach make up the mirrored pattern in the gates that were cast in aluminum at a sculpture foundry in North Wales.
