Ripples and Journeys | Konstantin Dimopoulos

12 March, 2010

PROJECT Ripples and Journeys
LOCATION City of Monash Civic Centre, Melbourne, Australia
ARTIST Konstantin Dimopoulos
YEAR 2010

A new public artwork by Konstantin Dimopoulos has recently been installed in Melbourne.

Artist’s Statement:
Ripples and Journeys was commissioned by the City of Monash and is situated in front of an iconic heritage-listed building designed by architect Harry Seidler who once said “Our eyes seek transparency, lightness….being able to look through things.”

I sensed an opportunity to return back to life what is actually a standby water storage facility by using sculptural forms that suggest the idea of water droplets splashing upwards then falling down again, creating ripples, a parable for journeys and new communities.

In this instance, the architecture of the building, the waterfall wall, and the vicinity of the fountain as a catchment give clues to the way I saw the site and how I felt the sculpture should evolve.”
