A 23m high tower in perforated corten steel and light. The lighting effect which reveals a linear drawing at distance effectively “pixilates” as the viewer approaches. This visual phenomena causes each perforation to reveal a different hue to others.


The work celebrates the industrial history of the site by re-imagining the past tower/smokestack of the foundry and giving it a new visually interactive sensibility.


This work is one of many collaborations between Warren Langley (artist) Trent Baker (industrial designer and director Armature Design Support) and Partridge Event Engineering (structural engineers.
