Social Collider – Balaclava Railway Station

Commissioned by the City Of Port Phillip as part of the renewal of the Balaclava Station precinct.

Derived from the sculpture named Social Collider Theory, this piece, Social Collider is made from five interlinked Copper rings approximately 2 metres in diameter finished with a natural patina. The rings feature interactive internal lighting that is triggered to softly light the piece from behind as commuters pass by.

Social Collider is a sculptural representation of our fast paced sphere of social connections and paths. Today our capacity for social connection and interaction is broadening, speeding up and shrinking the distance between our own circle and that of others. People move in their own busy circles and at times will collide with others when circles cross paths. Our paths collide; we connect, build new circles and broaden the momentum.
