Blowhole by Duncan Stemler


Standing 15 metres high, Blowhole is one of Australia’s largest kinetic artworks – a mesmerising sight with hundreds of anodised aluminium moving parts. It is a powerful combination of complex engineering and art.  In collaboration with Axel Arnott, Creative Road’s Rebecca Townsend was contracted by Sculpture by the Sea to project manage this major artwork.

Client:                          Melbourne Docklands Authority

Location:                     Blowhole Park Playground, Docklands VIC

"As the wind blows through, armature and cups interact with each other to form a multitude of patterns, colours and shadows. The LED lighting in each coloured “cup” ensures the artwork comes alive at night." Rebecca Townsend, Creative Road
