Baybaru
Johnson, Paul

Baybaru - Inhabitants of reef and land have always sustained life from harvesting the riches from the sea. These hybrid sculptural forms are derived from both the sea anemone of the reefs and the woven funnel-net fish traps (Baybaru) of the Indigenous people. Both are methods of obtaining sustenance from entrapment. These sculptures come to life at night with fibre-optic lighting.

 The artwork was installed in 2003 and is made with stainless steel and copper.
