at the Marine Operations Centre, Fremantle, WA in 2005
A percent for art project managed by Paola Anselmi
Supported by Chris Reimer
A framework of marine ply was constructed on the inside curved wall of the main meeting and training room of the Marine Operations Centre. The unusual shape of the 17 m round wall was exploited by painting a mural which immersed clients and stakeholders in an aquatic environment - referencing the popular experience of underwater viewing rooms (i.e. on Busselton Jetty).
The painting was an abstract interpretation of an underwater world that attempted to create a sense of depth, mystery, movement, transparency and beauty.
It encompassed a height of 2m at the left side and moved to a height of 4.5 metres on the right side of the wall.
