This commission explores informal play through the use of unexpected materials. Two elements make up the artwork, the first is a geometric rocky outcrop and tree trunk sculpture, referencing natural materials but created in concrete and bronze. The second element is a network of concrete stepping-stones, scattered along the Thames Riverside and Nine Elms Lane, designed to encourage an exploration of the public realm.
Simon and Tom Bloor’s work uses a range of media to explore moments of utopian potential and flawed idealism, crossing the boundaries between art, design and social history. In 2014 they took part in the Flat Time House PHYNANCE residency and worked with Futurecity on a series of large-scale public projects in Cambridge. www.simonandtombloor.com
