The Sydney Pavilion / Shanghai Biennale 2012

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Graphic Design / Integrated Graphics / 2013

‘The Floating Eye’ was the curatorial theme of the Sydney Pavilion in the Shanghai Biennale, the largest international art event in mainland China, attracting over eight million visitors. Sydney was part of the Inter-City Pavilions, offering observations of a city’s shifting references and influences. The challenge was to convey the varied perspectives of the city’s transforming reality observed though its demographics, environment, history, geography and society. We built a visual language of symbols, combined and intertwined by a shifting graphical interpretation of the lens of the viewer.
