If you have walked around the Waite campus recently, you have undoubtedly come across wollen sculptures. These “String things” as they are called by Tanya Court are installations by the students from the School of Architecture and Built Environment (SABE) in the Faculty of Engineering, Computer & Mathematical Sciences (ECMS).
This is the first time that there has been undergraduate representation from a faculty other than Sciences on campus. These sculptures are used to teach students how to use space as well as deal with potential issues related to the industry such as, working safely in a public realm and how to deal with clients when your project needs approval to proceed.
The group of students that installed the pictured String thing said “The whole concept behind the strings that are attached on the tree, is using the landscape and nature to produce something unique and different, which in our group we have decided to understand and abstract the sun’s movement and light through the trees”.
