Daws Road Project
In collaboration with Tania Taylor from the Kaurna Yerta Aboriginal Corporation and Katie Miller of Cox Architecture, our Melbourne-based studio embarked on a remarkable furniture project. At the core of this installation lies a custom-designed and meticulously handcrafted flame sculpture. Standing tall at 3 meters and spanning nearly 1.5 meters wide, the sculpture is constructed from durable Corten Steel, ensuring its longevity. Adjacent to the ceremonial flame, atop a raised plinth displaying the word "Mukapaanthi" (Kaurna for "remember"), stand three laser-cut figures. These statues pay tribute to the Kaurna people, as well as past and present soldiers who have served Australia, encompassing a traditional Kaurna warrior, a World Wars representative, and a modern-day soldier. The design incorporates rusted aesthetic curves, seamlessly crafted within the rigid medium of Corten Steel, to evolve gracefully over time. The Memorial can be found at the intersection of Goodwood, Springbank, and Daws Roads.
