Plexa #1 on The William Jolly Bridge

Plexa is one of a myriad of striking patterns from Waterson’s Komodo Series of hand woven sculptural objects and wall reliefs. Projected here on the William Jolly Bridge in Brisbane for the Brisbane City Council’s BACI Festival 2015, Plexa maps movement and growth over time bringing to light the hidden structure and form of the bridge. Variation in line and arrangement give subtle changes to the pattern’s visual density and implicit meaning. As with the screens in the Komodo Series its visual repetition, and spatial and rhythmic qualities draw the viewer into an aesthetic state of bliss or groove.
