Duncan Stemler, Melbourne Docklands VIC
Standing 15 metres high, Blowhole by Sydney artist Duncan Stemler is one of Australia’s largest kinetic artworks – a mesmerising sight with hundreds of anodised aluminium moving parts. It is a powerful combination of complex engineering and art.
In collaboration with Axel Arnott, Creative Road’s Rebecca Townsend was contracted by Sculpture by the Sea to project manage this major kinetic artwork for one of Melbourne’s significant public places. The role involved working closely with the artist to develop a proposal for a competitive limited tender process. Following a successful tender bid, Rebecca co-project managed the complex design development phase which included fabrication of a one arm/one cup prototype.
