Metalmatisse is an interactive, stainless steel, light and sound sculpture designed to compliment the formal European landscape of MacArthur Square. Each flower gives an individual response when prompted by visitors below. Periodically the entire sculpture comes to life in an orchestrated chorus of light and sound. The vase and bouquet are loosely adapted from paintings of flowers by French artist Henri Matisse with a distinctly modern statement of scale and exuberance.
