Australia Pacific Airports Melbourne engaged Creative Road to manage the commissioning of a $1m large scale kinetic artwork for a 1km site along Melbourne Airport’s new extension road – Airport Drive, Tullamarine. Our role included preparing a strategy, artist shortlist and managing the artist selection process.
Australian artists Matthew Harding, Marion Borgelt, Simeon Nelson and Alexander Knox were engaged to prepare artwork concepts to create a sense of place and narrative for the area. Matthew Harding’s work Volare was selected as the winning concept however the project was suspended due to funding issues.
