FJMT was fundamentally involved from the outset in the conception and procurement of this public artwork. We were responsible for outlining the physical and thematic opportunities for public art across the site, working in close consulation with the client City of Sydney, within the framework of their key public art objectives.
We organised and ran the Ideas/Design Competition in-house, undertaking the shortlisting and appraisal of candidates, from which we commissioned Robert Owen to undertake the painting and installation of Interlude. We ran the Design Development process, nominating potential locations for the artwork within the Atrium (including the soffits and precast walls) and aided in the selection of the final artwork configuration by preparing three-dimensional visualisation studies on behalf of the artist. We liaised with Owen throughout the development, fabrication and installation of the piece.
