The installation began last week. Ben and Bel braved the 7.2m height to install the plates for suspension of the mobiles.
With meticulous attention to detail, the pair installed 7 mobiles, threading 252 individual Myrnong seed sculptures on to stainless steel suspension wires.

All finished except for the lighting.
The setting Western sun providing magical illumination.
After the library closed we experimented with some spotlighting. I was excited to see all the seeds moving, creating sparkling circles of light.
