A homage and meditation on two kinetic sculptures by mid-twentieth century Australian artists. Gerald Lewers' ICI Building Fountain (Melbourne 1958) and Margel Hinder's masterwork, the Civic Park Fountain (Newcastle 1966) are re-presented in detail within the bureaucratic and commercial strictures that surround the works. The work is part of a series which also includes Four Pieces 14min 4k 2017; a homage to Margo Lewer's sculpture Four Pieces (1964) in the Reserve Bank of Australia, Canberra.
