Simone Eisler installed this sculpture as part of the Marcoola Streetscape project incorporating sphere and small starfish elements throughout the pedestrian strip and a large interactive starfish artwork located within the Village Green. 'The interactive works scattered throughout the pedestrian strip and Village Green reference rock pools and their micro-worlds. These clustering hybrid forms and their intricately carved patterns and colour are inspired by marine life and the ocean. They serve as functional works to sit on, play with and touch. Portal celebrates the coastal and beach life of Marcoola - by linking the aquatic with the urban'. This project was jointly funded by Sunshine Coast Council and the Marcoola Traders and Community.
