Endless Sunlight, Dappling Shadows | Brisbane City Council

Endless Sunlight, Dappling Shadows

Hiroshi Uchida and Louise Lindgren are one of the finalists in Brisbane City Council's Recycling Art Competition and have created 'Endless Sunlight, Dappling Shadows'.

“This piece includes three spheres that represent Brisbane’s past. Each sphere features a connecting theme: places, people and buildings/structures. Our intention was to create interlacing spheres that resemble nature’s beauty and reveal subtle movements of the cycles in history.”

This piece is 150-160 centimetres high and is made from venetian blinds and painted, printed canvas.

Recycling Art Competition

This competition explores the creative potential of recycling household items and furniture, and inspiring others to see the possibility in things that may have otherwise have been thrown away. The artworks have been created with items from Council's tip shops and other second-hand sales.
