Geometric Concrete Installations Echo Rippling Tides


Pool, the Alchemy of Blue is an art project featuring a variety of geometric arrangements with chunks of concrete that explores "identity, connection and 'genius loci' or sense of place" by Australian artist Lizzie Buckmaster Dove. The various floor and suspended installations are each made of pieces of concrete extracted from an old pool in Coledale, Australia.
The artist felt inspired to begin this series from her daily walks on the beach once the pool was being renovated in 2011. The basic shape and composition of the structures is simple: a circular formation with one side elevated to echo both the cycle of the moon and the motion of rippling waves. (For similar geometric stone formations, check out the works of Jae-Hyo Lee and Giuseppe Randazzo.)
