Part A Suspended lightweight artworks in the central entry atrium. The Artist's Brief encourages the commissioned artist/s to develop an immersive artwork of contemporary design possibly referencing the natural environment and potentially activating ephemeral light and movement. The artist however is not restricted to this approach within their conceptual framework.

Part B ‘Digital quilt’ new media artwork on the ground floor with associated 2D components integrated into C Block ground floor glass panels & K Block lift lobbies on eight floors. The digital quilt concept is based upon an artwork that uses multiple images/patterns/colours designed as a projected work onto the wall, screen based work which has the potential to change over time OR other emerging and experimental technologies.
