Journeys by Phil Price
New Zealand artist Phil Price sculptures have a reputation for unique and innovative use of contemporary materials and processes. Since 2005 Price has focused on his sculpture practice, working principally on large scale works for the outdoor environment. Phil Price's name is synonymous with large scale, wind-activated kinetic sculpture.
Phil Price’s sculpture, 'Journeys', graces the entrance to the Canberra airport, lending the gateway a sci-fi feel. Unlike his other sculptural works, this sculpture takes its starting point as something more organic. It’s got 22 moving joints, and so each part only has to move a small amount and you get the overall sense of a thing that’s just flowing.
