Will Heathcote, Synthesis (38°08’36.92” S, 145°10’36.55” E), existing eucalypts, industrial enamel coating, 2012

This work was accepted to be part of the 2012 McClelland Award and Survey along with around 30 other artists. It was situated in the sculpture park for close to a year and presented a deceased tree form, sourced from the park’s grounds and coated in a thick black enamel film. The synthetic skin cast the otherwise familiar form into a new state of being.
