Order-Disorder is a combination of chaotic painted pattern areas which become more ordered across various elevations of the entire building facade, ending in a 5m x 3m recycled glass tile mosaic. The imposing artwork is 12.5m at its tallest point and 60m in total width. Kyle Hughes-Odgers created this artwork with 100% recycled hand cut glass tiles and paint, to illustrate and inspire ideas around recycling ideology and practice, while exploring themes of journey and sustainability.
The largest recycling centre in the Southern Hemisphere, Cleanaway Materials Recycling Plant sought to illustrate, represent, inform, educate and inspire the recycling idealogy through this large-scale mural. Combining the physical use and representation of recycled products was essential in aligning the principle of creating from waste on a site surrounded by other industrial premises and bordered by the Great Eastern Highway Bypass.
The process of painting the large format artwork went very smoothly with Kyle spending approximately 6 weeks on site painting. The glass tiles arrived from the manufacturer in California and a professional tiler installed the tile components to the artwork.
