Have you taken your “Selfie with Walter”? Facebook groups are abuzz with discussion about the Lyrics, Landscapes and Lintels artworks that have recently been installed! Whilst we are yet to officially complete the installation with interpretive signage, the artwork is fun and ready to experience. From most perspectives the piece Anamorphic Resonance in Chelmsford Place appears to be simply an abstract installation of Art Deco ornaments, with cornices and geometric patterns inspired by Walter Burley Griffin’s work. When viewed from just the correct angle, everything snaps into alignment and a portrait of the designer himself is revealed, framed by the iconic water towers he created. Check it out and share your images #SelfieWithWalter!
