Fran Baskerville’s art work, “In the Moment”, is a glimpse of Gordon Head. It’s a community of people that share a landscape and home that values and supports distinct ethnic backgrounds, ages, abilities and activity choices.
Baskerville digitally scanned the artwork to print it on to a fabric window cover. This provides a colourful sunshade. The shade material allows some light to get through. This further brightens the artwork.
About the Project Process
- Re-develop and expand the Gordon Head Recreation Centre: 2010.
- Public art competition: 2010
We upgraded the weight room and change rooms and added a dance studio and multipurpose room. We also made energy efficiency improvements. We installed a green roof and a solar water heating system. A public art jury selected Baskerville’s piece.
