Place: Jennett's Park, Bracknell

Date: Installed February 2008

Description: A 7m high stainless steel triangular base with an aluminium figure leaning from the top.

Funded by: Redrow Homes

Commissioned by: Redrow Homes and Bracknell Forest Borough Council

Notes: This was a challenging site as there was very little surrounding the piece and on the middle of a roundabout the road creates a barrier. Surrounded by road lights and traffic signs there seemed a lot to compete with. The brief for the piece was to have an element of directing people into the housing development. I wanted to make a piece, which made you look above the cars and stood out from the lighting columns and signage. A sculpture which gives a sense of control through the feeling of balance, but being a bit like a marker, a stick in the ground, marking the spot on a map.
