This significant historic arch is part of the support system for the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It stretches across the Argyle Cut, a pass hewn by convicts over 24 years through sandstone. This installation transforms the rugged, practical environment into an intimate theatrical setting. Gone is the vast expanse of concrete, replaced by glimpses of the Victorian era and geometric patterns in a sequence that migrates nightly from west to east.
