‘Circuitry’ restoration

CHRIS Bourke says conservation work is getting started on the public artwork “Circuitry” by Fiona Hooton in the city bus interchange.

“For the past 15 years, city workers and commuters have walked past this red steel tower, perhaps stopping to take in the incredible shapes and detail, or admiring it from afar,” Chris said.

“Standing at 8.8 metres tall Circuitry is ideally placed in the Civic bus interchange, symbolising the dynamic flows of people, transport and information that fill, move through, and empty from the circulatory system of the city.

“The conservation work on Circuitry involves the existing paint being sanded back, the artwork primed and repainted. With a fresh coat of paint, it will be even more eye catching, ready to be admired for at least the next 15 years.

“Circuitry will remain where it is during the repainting process, which is expected to take just under three weeks to complete. The value of the conservation work is $31,295.00, which is covered through an existing budget for public art maintenance.”
