#Flourish

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA

Katrina Tyler’s artwork Flourish is a richly symbolic installation for Newport Waterside Park, a state-of-the-art recreational park in the Moreton Bay Region, Queensland. The artwork builds on the artist’s ongoing body of work, and uses material, process and form to explore the activity and diversity of coral species inhabiting and flourishing in new areas of Moreton Bay.

The artwork comprises five pier-like vertical elements, each of which is created from a cluster of hand-beaten discs. Fabricated in laser cut stainless steel, Augmented Reality technology was used during the welding process to assist with determining the orientation of each disc and consistency across the design. Combined with spouting water jets, the artwork provides a considered yet playful element for a central part of this new
waterside development.
