Droplet is a major public artwork for Canberra and was commissioned for a busy street corner in the town centre of Woden in ACT. Droplet acts as both a day time and a night time beacon for the site which is inhabited by thousands of office workers and city users.
The jewel-like Droplet sits at an angle to reinforce its precarious and weighty presence. Droplet is made of stainless steel pleats, each pierced to create a highly decorative, reflective and mesmeric surface pattern. Powerful internal LED lights illuminate the Public artworkfrom within and at night, give the sculpture a sense of transparency and weightlessness that contrasts with its daytime mass.
