Fleeting silhouettes of whales traversing along Sydney’s coastline reveal glimpses of superhighways that transcend equator lines. Navigating in pods, the annual pilgrimage of the ocean’s most majestic sentinels serves as the inspiration for BLUE CORRIDOR.
Movement is explored in every piece. Settings are choreographed at varying heights to capture the synchronisation of drifting pods. Three dimensional forms echo the twist of breached flukes and fluid lines trace migratory patterns. Pear-shaped diamonds symbolise the whale’s form whilst Australian sapphires are akin to the ink-blue depths of the ocean.
