“Reveal” is based on the concept of persistence over change. It is a reflection of Wyndham’s aspiration to break away from its stagnant past –constantly and gradually evolving towards a progressive new future. The sculpture is one which stands proud within the constant changes surrounding it, a form influenced by weather and enhanced through time. From afar, the tower serves as a marker for the city, a sign, a gateway. Up close, it is a sculpture of persistence. The sculpture’s veils will eventually corrode, revealing the true form of the sculpture. Hence a prevailing theme of metamorphosis exists, symbolising the progression of a city which can only happen and be observed with time. The sculpture will therefore mature together with the city, growing together with its changes and making it an essential part of Wyndham – changing as much as the city changes. The stains and patina then become the symbol of the city’s resistance, and its gradual progress towards the future.

TUTORS : LOREN ADAMS | CHRIS GILBERT

The tower fulfils Wyndham’s aspiration of wanting something which inspires and enriches the municipality. It is exciting and eye-catching – a dynamic tower which constantly reinvents itself through time. This is an essential characteristic which the municipality wants - a sculpture with little maintenance and has “longevity in its appeal”. The tower and the city will go hand in hand towards progress– acting as a catalyst for further improvements in the city, inspiring the community at large, and encourages further reflection of the sculpture beyond first glance. There is this sense of meaning, a continuous interest in the sculpture as we observe its transformations through time.
