Where Pigeons Dare

Milsons Point Station, Sydney

A circular metal sculpture in the shape of a ring, made from individual sections welded together, with a flat plate at each join. The sections have cutouts in swirly shapes, cogwheel shapes, spirals and ellipses, and one contains steel bars set in a zigzag pattern like a bridge. The main structure stands on a steel wedge shaped like a shark fin, which in turn is bolted to a concrete plinth. The sculpture stands on grass beside a path, with a wall and train station behind it. A pigeon sits on the very top of the ring. Three pigeons sit at the bottom, inside the ring, and others on two of the metal plates that lie horizontally. A dozen pigeons sit on the concrete plinth, and two on the grass. The sky is white - washed out.
