An Outline of Memory, 2018

Peter Sansom





Artist Statement

A place, now vanished, abstracted and remembered.

Adelaide Urban Iconography was a large public sculpture on the Adelaide Festival Centre plaza and the largest artwork in Australia. Since 1977, it has been a memorable part of any visit to the Centre, a meeting place and a playground. It certainly loomed large in my life and memories. Due to “redevelopment” of the plaza, namely an extension to a casino and a planned office tower, it was ripped up and torn down. Not only has this public space been given over to private enterprise but a significant and amazing piece of sculpture has been destroyed.

Before it’s destruction I spent some time photographing the area from as many angles and different focal lengths to try and personally preserve the memory of this place. This piece uses some of those photos using the analog video technique of raster manipulation, which would have been in use when Adelaide Urban Iconography was planned and opened. The once large open space has been confined, rendered down, each part not quite as distinct as it once was. Even memories fade.

Analog raster manipulation of photos pushed out of a custom Processing sketch.
