Stephen Roy with Tom Golin

Stephen Roy with Tom Golin, Ripples, 2019, bronze, river gum and stainless steel

Ripples the integrated furniture suite in Gawler Place has been designed by local emerging artist Stephen Roy working with metal fabricator Tom Golin. This is a series of artworks integrated as furniture items along the street, including 5 seats and 17 traffic delineators, some of which also function as bike racks. These artworks explore the inherent kinetic energy in flowing water and were inspired by how objects such as native trees, stones and grasses act on and are acted upon by the dramatic ebb and flow of water throughout the Adelaide Plains…. Ripples looks specifically how these markers can be used as guides to direct the kinetic flow through the Gawler Place precinct, allowing users to be carried by a current, past or present.
