Collaborating artists Rebecca Ward and Russell Anderson described the work as an interactive and dynamic work that is a highly engaging cluster of sculptures providing people the ability to interact through the movement responsive lighting. It will be a key place maker for the Timari Street precinct. The signature artwork will reflect the energy and unique character of the Timari Street precinct and local region.

Recently, council officers were onsite at the artist's studio to see the work as it starts to take shape. Russell Anderson's studio, based in Witta here on the Sunshine Coast, was full of metal pieces that form a puzzle like construction. Each element is individually drawn and translated into a plasma cutter to create the pieces that start to form the artwork as they are locked, stacked and welded together. The hours and dedication to create this dynamic and unique work is truly inspiring.

Council's streetscape upgrade in Timari Street Pacific Paradise commenced in September and the artwork is to be installed in March 2018.
