Revealing the spirit of Parsons Street

 

 

I was  commissioned  to provide creative direction for the eastern end of Parsons Street from the ‘ancient red gum’ to the Todd River. Public art and design projects of the scale envisaged provide a rare, perhaps once in a generation opportunity to define our sense of identity and place.

The dramatic natural environment is regarded as the common ground that binds us all together and this is crystallised in the biodiversity corridor proposed for Parsons Street.  I've also highlighted the critical importance of distant landmarks and the availability of winter
sun. Too often these public assets  are only valued and recognised, when they are lost to the streetscape: casualties of 'progress'. MIKE GILLAM writes.
