ROADS & MARITIME SERVICES NSW
ACOUSTICS WALL MURAL, CORPORATE OFFICES
Balarinji was engaged to design and produce acoustic panels to be wall mounted at the Roads & Maritime Services Rozelle corporate offices, in line with a maritime-themed concept.
The artwork consists of seven 2.4m x 1.2m panels, and was produced to highest standards of print and sound properties by Knauf, Germany.
'Canoe Paths' is a contemporary Balarinji design that pays tribute to the rich Indigenous maritime history of Sydney Harbour.
The lines depict tracks across the Harbour where clans and families paddled canoes on pristine water amongst migrating whales, and black cockatoos flew overhead; the circles are places on the Harbour foreshore where families gathered to cook their catch and share stories, as they passed knowledge from one generation to the next.
