Swimming in Duck Creek

Granville Swimming Centre, Granville, NSW

This piece depicts a computer-generated version of people swimming in a creek; the pool sits on what used to Duck Creek where the residents would swim ‘in the old days’. It was dedicated to Margaret Whitlam who appeared at the opening of the Granville Swimming Centre in a diving display in 1936.

Extended consultation with Council Recreation Department employees and the landscapers/architects for the project. I created a mini arts plan including multiple designs which were workshopped with the project management team.

This piece has since been covered by vinyl flooring as the original restaurant and café use of the building was changed to a facility that would admit people who were wet from the pool, which is not compatible with even non-slip surface terrazzo.
