Botanical sculptures inspired by Brian Robinson

Adelaide Botanic High students looked to Kala Lagaw Ya and Wuthathi artist Brian Robinson for their 'Future Looks Bright' project.

The students were asked to tell a story – a story of the future and what it meant to them as a new school. They were given a brief to include botanical forms and the inclusion of a recycled material.

With the use of contrasting colours, collage and laser-cut straw board, they created collaborative works which were then displayed at the end of year arts showcase Catalyst. On the year 7 Welcome day, workshops were derived from this project and the year 7 students created miniature versions, which were later suspended from 2m wide chandeliers in the main atrium.
