Materials existing seats, persian carpet

Dimensions variable

Statement  Installed on existing public seats Persian carpets were woven into the seats. Traditionally these carpets are used for sitting on in domestic settings while the public seats provide a different place to sit and relax in nature. The union of these elements East / West, public / private, soft / hard, offer opportunity for contemplation and appreciation of the richness of our Australian society and hopefully a visual intrigue.
