One cold night in Woolloongabba

EPIFICUS has been installed into its permanent location on Ipswich Road, Woolloongabba (Morrisey Streel Bridge) as of Friday night. The stair tower to which the work is attached is due to be open to the public after the 26th of June.

There were a few small complications due to a very tight fit. A 4 hour scheduled installation took 6 & 1/2 hours but this was not entirely unexpected. Special thanks to Col & Chris from Mulherin Rigging and Cranes for their patience, care & ingenuity.

EPIFICUS 2007-09

After almost two years of planning and many revisions due to budget constraints EPIFICUS is finally on the way.
Rocklea Pressed Metal are once again manufacturing the work.
EPIFICUS consists of 433 + pieces of 316 stainless steel, laser cut, folded and welded to form a folding tubular 'vine' with a perforated skin.
It is scheduled to be installed at the end of this month.
The work will attach to the outside of the pedestrian stair tower that forms part of the Morrisey Street Bridge at the Woolloongabba entrance of the North South Bypass Tunnel.
