Bark Lab

Floating Land

Date: May 31 - June 9, 2013

Venue: Boreen Point at Lake Cootharaba on the Sunshine Coast with satellite locations around the region.

Bark Lab’s ‘Growth’ project is a green art installation piece designed for Floating Land 2013. Through loosely connected sculptural constructs, ‘Growth’ is about orchestrating an experience for a way of viewing the landscape and a heightened awareness of the characteristics that create Place.

Floating Land is a biennial 10-day environmental art festival held on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia that brings together international, national and local artists to explore environmental themes through art and dialogue.

The festival is an initiative of Sunshine Coast Council, hosting workshops, performances, installations and presentations that use creativity as a means for generating discussion and awareness about the environment to promote learning and change.
