Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Continuum

Continuum by Michael Snape (1951 - )
Created in 2005, this impressive artistic work measures 600 x 600 x 1200 cm and stands at the intersection of The Esplanade and Bourke Street along Waterview Walk. Essentially, Continuum is about the dance of life, reflecting the human condition of being alive.

The interconnected figures encircle each other and reach up to the sky, conveying a sense of community, co-operation and wellbeing. The artist was inspired by the Docklands coming to life again, impacting on the community's sense of self and causing "an internal shift: this is the continuum."

¿Quienes son los Docklands?

Davine - Melbourne has over 100 public art pieces! WE may not have the old masters of Europe, but our public art is superb.

Johnny - Docklands is the name given to the area being developed which is adjacent to the CBD and extending for 2 kms to the west.
Cheers.

An interesting piece - certainly full of energy! The little plants seem to be blowing in the wind. Or sharing in the energy of the piece?
