AS THE CROW FLIES
In As the Crow Flies, hundreds of vibrant neon pink crow
feathers lay against a cobalt blue background, highlighting the
transient nature of Barangaroo’s high human traffic and its known
history as a meeting place.
“The feathers mirror a congregation of people – a meeting place of
diverse individuals, philosophies and histories – coming together,
reflecting the hive of activity that is unfolding in the redevelopment
of Sydney’s Barangaroo precinct,” says Rennie, adding feathers are “a
very symbolic and esoteric figure in many cultures around Australia.”
The commanding two-colour installation is painted vertically and horizontally onto the exteriors and interiors
of buildings and hoardings, between International Tower Three and
Hickson Road, and extends into the
entry and exit areas of the main car park, making it
clearly visible from nearby office towers.
