Bligh Street

James Angus was commissioned to provide the public artwork for the forecourt of No 1 Blight Street.

Lighting, Art and Science were commissioned by Robyn Oxley Gallery to light the artwork. The base building had lighting bars installed in preparation for an artwork that was unknown at the time of the base building design.

Due to the complex shape of the artwork and the limited locations for lights, the artwork was extensively computer modelled to not only ensure that it was lit from all viewing angles but also that the object maintained its texture, colour and did not appear flat.

A large number of low wattage metal halide spotlights and profiles were used to address all the facades.
