Kirsten Bauer, Studio Director has recently been invited to present at a number of key national events.
‘The Meaning of Light’An event hosted by Electrolight and part of Federation Square’s The Light in Winter Festival. Kirsten joined six leaders in their respective fields of design, photography, science, architecture and landscape architecture. Other speakers included Alistair Knox, Marc Pascal, Vicki Cauzens, Tracey Sletten, Shannon McGrath and Stuart Harrison. They shared what light means to them and how it impacts the work that they produce in the public realm. From a personal perspective, Kirsten talked about the ‘Golden Hour’. That time before sunset when shadows become dramatic against the landscape and everything is rich and golden. Her work on the National Emergency Services Memorial, in Canberra demonstrates the power and beauty of this type of light. Light and shadow played are large role in the sculpture form to the memorial. Click here to discover more about National Emergency Services Memorial.
