Skipping Stones by Jade Oakley
Skipping Stones evokes memories of water, play and interaction. The installation of 22 hand cast concrete stones, etched with native fauna and scattered around a reflective creek, is part of a new residential development at Macquarie Park in Sydney. The work encourages interaction especially for children and creates strong ties with the local landscape.
Creative Road worked with Jade Oakley to manage complex artwork logistics from prototyping to fabrication and installation of the various material components. The final work incorporates programmed in ground lighting, bespoke metal grates and a bridge element.
