The Travellers - celebrates the indigenous presence and the meeting of cultures thorugh migration. Built in 1888, the bridge is the third to occupy this site. Each of the ten figures, comprising the work represents a phase of arrival.
Comprised of almost a thousand individual pieces of 80mm square and rounded stainless steel tubing, some up to 8 metres long, Embelton was responsible for bending the steel pipes into precise shapes according to the artist’s specification. Using sand filled bending technology, Embelton was able to achieve tight radii for the metal with negligible cross-sectional deformation.
