Buoys are a mainstay of Muir’s artistic vocabulary, though Shish-ka-buoy experiments with the exact antithesis of its water-based counterpart. Standing tall at up to 6 metres on land, you’ll find Shish-ka-buoy positioned in a cluster, creating a dynamic tension between each upright installation.
Intended to be a fun installation that is equally interesting by day as it is under the cover of darkness; during daylight hours, the large buoys absorb the light and give off a magical glow. By night, thousands of LEDs inside create a whirl of colours and spherical gradients. The installation is made from fully recyclable polyethylene marine buoys.
This is the largest installation of Angus Muir’s work, and has been a popular fixture across many recent events nationwide including Splore.
