Brisbane City Council commissioned an exterior sculptural seating for a vantage point lookout in the inner city suburb of Paddington. This work explores the performance of reading and the conflation between the printed page and the 21st Century hand-held screen. It romanticises summer days spent outstretched on the verandah daybed with a few good books, gazing out to the distant view. Here the reader acknowledges the First Nation peoples. Brisbane’s road infrastructure, built upon pathways walked by the Turrbal and Jagera peoples, is appropriated as a tartan cushion depicting Paddington’s avenues and terraces. This also recognises Scottish born explorer, Thomas Petrie (1831-1910) who freely associated with the Aboriginal people, spoke their language and parcipated in their daily activities. This work was unveiled in November, 2016.
