Sight Line II
Pier Artwork by Louise Lavarack from Victoria
This popular and engaging work of art was originally installed in 2004. In 2019 it was renewed and reinstalled by the artist and her team. Now made with bronze posts and improved spindle mechanisms, it is designed to last many years into the future. The line of poles extends from the forecourt roundabout to the pier’s end and features a row of windvanes that adjust to the slightest shift in wind direction. The windvane panels are painted with naval signal flag graphics that spell out a hidden text.
- Materials: cast silicon bronze, stainless steel and painted aluminium
Sight Line II enhances the visitor’s experience at Frankston Pier, a focal point at the beachfront since 1857. Considering the local significance of the pier, both historically and emotionally, any artwork built into its form had to be done with intelligence, finesse and sensitivity. Sight Line II has certainly achieved this.
