Pobl + Machines
National Waterfront Museum,
Swansea, 2006

A series of letter shaped sculptures created for the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea. The museum charts the industrial heritage of Wales and the seats spell out Pobl (Welsh for people) + Machines. Each letter, which is constructed with stainless steel, granite and concrete also refers to an item on display inside the museum. Located in the waterfront park in front of the museum, Pobl + Machines has become a poplar seating area for locals and visitors as well as working as a thematic link between the interior museum exhibits and the external waterfront area.
