Invoking the ghosts of asylum

Based in memories of roaming the Callan Park grounds by night, histories, escapades and anecdotes. The sense of presence is strongly felt and we attempt to convey with this augmentation a benevolent guiding overseer, a shadow composite of all those who in times of need or vulnerability have passed through the facility. There is a restlessness in the serene surrounds of this public space in Rozelle and we hope our temporary monument captures and evokes the inviolable spirit residing within the people and the place.
