Nautical Kickstart Festival 2012

Commissioned by Propel Youth Arts, The Kickstart Festival looks at celebrating the youths of today. The nautical theme developed into a recycle workshop aided by simple manipulation of plastic materials that would showcase a giant squid.

Its impressive three-meter structure provided support to the embellishments that would take place through the months of construction workshops. During the showcase, five hundred inflatable helium jellyfish accompanied the central sculpture. Other works included inflatable sea anemones, which floundered around the City of Perth.
