Ballast Point Public Artwork Program, 2008, Sydney Harbour NSW.

'Delicate Balance' by Robyn Backen (Artist)


The artwork Delicate Balance hovers over the waters edge. It can be entered into suggesting the entrance to a jetty or a lighthouse, and a series of cutouts offer views capturing the harbour, city, sky and park.The ocean viewed through a metal grate in the floor reverberates through the artwork, like the secret of listening to the sea in a shell held in the palm of a hand.
