Blue skies: installation time-lapse

Watch this time-lapse of Melbourne artist Trinh Vu installing her intricate work Blue skies in the Library.

Trinh drew inspiration for Blue skies from a bunch of sunflowers drying in her studio during her 2008 residency at Paris's Cités des Arts. She studied the structure of the flower heads and the way they deformed as they dried, and created a 3D digital model to aid her construction of the sculptural form we see on display.
