The kaleido/telescope is an interactive piece that playfully distorts the familiar Mandurah landscape while raising awareness of environmental issues. Outwardly it is a regular telescope but inside is a kaleidoscope and a special lens filled with fishing related litter.
The experience of looking into it is fun, beautiful and thought provoking.

3. The big cubby house
It’s a right of passage in childhood to build a cubby out of old cardboard boxes, and this project is going to give Mandurah kids the chance to build THE BIG ONE!! Using a huge collection of donated and scavenged boxes, of all sizes and shapes, we are going to build a fort, a town, a maze ... Whatever the public wants to make with safety box cutters, sticky tape, and their imagination.

4. Daisy chain
Arches of brightly coloured tubing will link together my interpretation of daisies, which will be created by clusters of chairs. The daisy centre within each cluster will be a fun representation of nature.
Come sit and reflect or make your very own connections with others.
