Sight Line

Pier Flags by Louise Lavarack from Victoria

This interactive and engaging installation features wind vanes that sensitivity adjust to shifts in wind direction’ (Louise Lavarack, 2008). Directly referencing the pier supports, each pole in Sight Line is surmounted by a semaphore flag which together spell out a hidden text.


Pier Promenade
Frankston Waterfront



  • Materials: mental and timber

Built in 1857, and extended in 1864, the Frankston Pier has long been the focal point of the beachfront as it juts out into Port Phillip Bay. Considering its local significance, both historically and emotionally, any artwork built into its form had to be done with intelligence, finesse and great sensitivity.
