Artwork location, details and photo credit


Geometry at odds
And connected
Evolving blues and yellows
Sea and sky,
Community repatterning
Young, urban schemes.
At night, shooting and dancing
In the street.
Changes over time
Observed, mimicked
And handed down.


Some comments from the selection panel:

“Really good”

“Nice observational piece”
