Description: There are two elements to this piece of public art and they are 4km (2.5miles) away from each other. Two 200mm curved and welded steel pipes, painted in red laquer, break through the ground at two different locations . One end is outside the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery at Royal Park and the other at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery at Inveresk. They are the ends of an imaginary underground coil of steel, which runs under the city to connect both musuems . A very clever concept indeed!

This sculpture was commissioned by the QVMAG Friends to acknowledge the vital role played by the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in the cultural life of Launceston and to create a symbolic link between the Museum's two sites, at Inveresk and Royal Park.
The artist acknowledges the technical support of Adrian Stabb. This project was generously supported by the QVMAG Friends, the Launceston Museum and Art Gallery Foundation and It's About Us 2006, an initiative of the Launceston City Council.

Locations: You will find either end of this sculpture at one of two sites, either outside the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery at Inveresk or the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery at Royal Park, Launceston, Tasmania.
