Operation Crayweed: Art-Work-Site - Sculpture by the Sea, 2016
Operation Crayweed Art-Work-Site was a multi-faceted, environmental performative and participatory art and science project that celebrated a significant and far-reaching good news story for Sydney’s coastal marine biodiversity.
An ‘art-work-site’ was established along Sydney’s Bondi to Bronte walk as part of the 2016 edition of Sculpture by the Sea. It physically and conceptually highlighted the otherwise invisible underwater crayweed reforestation project ‘Operation Crayweed’ being carried out along the Sydney coast including in the bay between Marks Park and the South Bondi Headland.
Some videos are now online, courtesy of Sculpture by the Sea:

NOMANSLANDING heads to Germany
German online press articles:
NOMANSLANDING - a new international travelling artwork
Darling Harbour, Sydney 1st April - 31st May 2015
Ruhrtriennale/Urbane Kunste Ruhr, Germany 14th August 2015
Glasgow, Merchant City Festival, 2016
Created by five international artists (Robyn Backen, Andre Dekker, Graham Eatough, Nigel Helyer and Jennifer Turpin) and initiated by Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, Nomanslanding premiered in Darling Harbour, Sydney this April, is now showing at the Ruhrtrienniale in Germany and will next year travel to the Merchant City Festival in Glasgow.
No Man’s Land refers to the impasse, the place no one dares traverse, the gap of fear and uncertainty between two sides of tentative safety – a memory, a metaphor inherited from the impossible stand-off of World War I trench warfare. How can this empty space, this vacuum of devastation be poetically reimagined?
Traverse the pontoon bridges and step into a surround-sound installation and performance while floating in the middle of the water. There you will be taken on a poetic journey of a soldier’s experience during wartime: confrontation and conflict, hope and redemption. Time slows and life speeds past.
Our breath floats on the water
A murmur joins your own
A prayer within the darkness
A crossing faithfully done
HALO is nominated as a top 15 must see new public artwork internationally.
