Canberra is a totally man-made city. Designed by Sir Walter Burley Griffin, it was founded in 1913 and is still developing and expanding to this day. The sculpture concept primarily focuses on the following themes:
The social 'landscape' of Canberra:
Canberra's past and present community spirit - especially that which initially provided the workforce to build Canberra and then shape its society - and how the strong notions of unity and community are still present and remain at the forefront of Australian values as a whole.
The natural and man-made landscape of Canberra:
The (human) creative vision of Canberra's design and its relation to the natural surroundings - as Canberra provides its inhabitants with one of Australia's finest and most breathtaking terrains and skylines - that often gives the surreal impression of living within an awesome Landscape painting - a true living work of art.
