“Chandelier” installed at Flinders Uni Student Hub

The Chandelier is one of the works I did with Deb Jones and Catherine Truman for the Microscope Project in 2014. It was acquired by Flinders University and installed above the main stairwell at the entrance to their new Student Hub. Here is an excellent little video that Flinders made about the installation.
