Pylon Tree

The centrepiece of the Arts Installation and Street Parade is the Pylon Tree sculpture, Pylonicus Speratus.  The Pylon Tree is being made by Artist, Shaun Gardner out of recycled materials from the electricity grid, donated by SP AusNet.  The Pylon Tree is designed as a platform for the community to express their current fears about climate change and their hopes and dreams for the future.  The community was invited to participate in the weaving of the branches of the tree with recycled wire and then had the opportunity to hang leaves off the tree with their thoughts written or drawn on them.
