Botanical for Student One

Botanical creates a dynamic entry experience within Student One’s Wharf Street foyer.  The artwork gathers as geometric orchids and lichens; collecting on interior walls and structure as abstract leaf and flower forms. The artwork references the flora that grows along Adelaide Street’s rock face adjacent to Student One. Through the artwork’s dimension, form and placement visitors are encouraged to move through and connect to the distinct spaces within the foyer, as well as the natural patterns and flora of the local precinct. Botanical parallels the gathering of students from diverse origins and their growth via the experiences, learning and networks developed while studying in Brisbane.

Botanical was commissioned by Student One under the Brisbane City Council Percent for Art Contribution Scheme helping to deliver Council’s vision for a vibrant and creative city.
