'Flower, Sun, Moon, Head'
City of Ryde Council, 2018
Flower, Sun, Moon, Head - designed as an inspirational exercise space for locals and visitors. Where thought pays homage to the body. Where the body responds with a clear mind.
Flower, Sun, Moon, Head (aka - the exercise mandala) is an artwork that serves as a stage for freedom of expression.
Located in Wilga Park, the space was identified by ARTSCAPE as appropriate for public art in the Macquarie Park Corridor Public Art Master Plan.
The artwork encourages people to become a part of the artwork, which facilitates exercise, yoga, dance and organised fitness.
These human interactions infer the never-ending spirals of existence – always renewing - always re-forming.
The vibrant petals of the mandala speak of energy, peace and flowing movement. The moon phase motifs become the socially distanced platforms for individuals during group sessions.
Flower, Sun, Moon, Head is the counterpoint to 'Burst', also by ARTSCAPE, which resides in the park.
