Abstract

‘Hood’ involved the placement of 150 car
bonnets into the Don headland along Lillico
Strait on Tasmania’s North West Coast, and
extended my ongoing fascination with the
reflected image as a motif in visual art. The
polished bonnets with a combined weight of
over 3 tonnes were carted across a paddock
and fixed to a steep embankment of parched
earth and volcanic basalt rock using 450 star
pickets, and over 400 metres of wire rope. Over
a dozen volunteers secured the work in place
overlooking the spectacular coastal vista, over a
two day period.
