This integrated artwork was commissioned as part of the Market to Riverbank upgrade in partnership with Renewal SA. The granite seats consist of a geometric abstract design inspired by geology referencing banded rock formations and are a nod to the millions of years taken for our landscape to evolve. Watson has said this it is ‘As if uncovered by an archaeologist the banded pattern running through the drainage grates and carved out of the seating elements seem to unveil traces of ancient landscapes and rock formations’.
