River Quiver

2007

River Quiver

River Quiver was a temporary environmental art installation for the Turning The Pages project in the Upper Hunter Valley town of Murrurundi.

The participatory project engaged 180 students from 5 local schools in science and art workshops to create the 170m long wind-activated installation. The installation on the banks of the river worked with sculptural balance to reflect upon environmental balance and biodiversity.
