Heads will turn as a giant kinetic sculpture in the form of a colourful lionfish joins the program for this year’s Wind on Water Festival. 

Celebrating the elements of wind and water, the giant kinetic sculpture comes to life through a bicycle, and the community is invited to help! 

With thanks to sponsorship from Stirlings Shopping Centre, artists Travis Bullock and Constance Titterton will create the bicycle-powered fish in the shopping centre as well as host workshops based around bikes. 

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the community will love contributing to an element that they will also get to see in action. 

“This is just another amazing element of the Wind on Water Festival,” he said. 

“Not only can you go and help bring it to life, but thousands will enjoy the sculpture as it makes its way up and down the Foreshore over the Easter long weekend. 

“A big thank you goes out to Stirlings Shopping Centre for sponsoring this element, we know it will be a hit!” 

As well as creating the sculpture, there will be free drop-in workshops. The workshops include helmet art and disc art. 

Attendees can bring their own bike helmet, and the materials are provided to create your very own fish helmet art. 

Disc art involves painting bike discs to take home and spruce up your bike. Materials are provided. 

The workshops will take place at Stirlings Shopping Centre outside Woolworths on Tuesday 16 April to Thursday 18 April from 10am-2pm daily.

The community can find out more about the kinetic sculpture by attending an artist talk on Thursday 18 April at 4pm. You can RSVP for the event by emailingeryn.leonard@au.knightfrank.com 

The kinetic creation will be on display at the WoW Fest on Saturday 20 April and Sunday 21 April.
