About the Artwork:
Seeds of Change is a 10 metre high structure designed to welcome home residents, and attract visitors, to the City of Wyndham. The structure enhances the appearance of this gateway and creates a Wyndham icon that symbolizes the community’s aspirations for the future.
A project group comprising local artists, an architect, community representatives, Councillors and Council staff oversaw the concept and design development of the structure and residents were invited to submit their feedback.
The design encompasses modern materials such as galvanised steel fabricated to the interesting shape. It features a series of open leaf shape frames, which descend in height. The leading frame features the black and red of naturally occurring basalt rock found in the region. Tall growing sugar gum will frame the site and knobby club rush will surround the structure.
