Metal in Motion
I'm not too sure what this piece of metal artwork is supposed to represent, but to me it appears like something from an outer space or futuristic movie. The upturned sheets remind me of flower petals facing the sun. What do you think?
This shot taken from around the other side. This artwork is near the RACV Club in Bourke Street in the Melbourne CBD.
Edit: I received a return phone call from David at the RACV Club who informed me this piece of sculpture is called "Shadow Form III" and was created by Western Australian artist Robert Juniper.
