#Echelon of Uncertainty
Multi-faceted artist Duke Riley addresses the tensions between individual and collective behaviour, independent spaces within all-encompassing societies, and the conflict with institutional power.
In Echelon of Uncertainty Riley etches images and stories from the Newtown creek in Brooklyn, one of the most polluted waterways in the US, and home to many people that illegally moor their vessels there.
The incredibly detailed 6.5-meter-long custom timber engraving was commissioned for the 23rd Biennale of Sydney and funded by Art Makers. Working virtually with Riley to realise his vision, UAP’s Australian team routed the original designs onto timber, then oiled, finished and assembled the final work.
