1. Geoffrey Ricardo created this artwork, Emblem, which represents a humanesque kangaroo striding and keeping pace with the tempo of life in the surrounding environment.

    The six-metre tall sculpture, 'Emblem', is intended to be playful, comic and iconic. It brings interest to this intersection, at the junction of George and Roma streets, Brisbane and seems to be a creature on a small island, standing tall in the middle of a busy road.

  2. 'Spinning Top' by Jarrad Kennedy is located at the junction of Turbot, Wickham and Boundary streets, Brisbane and references the heritage-listed remnants of James Duhig's unfinished Holy Name Cathedral, which can be seen on the Ann Street side of the Cathedral Place apartments.

    The sculpture is a scale model of the building’s dome - bringing to life the image of the dome lifting from the building, moving through the city like a spinning top and finally resting a short distance away from the cathedral’s intended site.

  3. Charles Robb’s artwork "Reverie I' is covered by curls and twirling forms, inspired by the idea of a sculpted wig on a 17th Century bust.

    Its location at the plinth on Gardens Point Road suggests the erratic movement of the Brisbane River and evokes the idea of 'reverie', a state of musing or meditation. It is relevant to both the university grounds (a site encouraging deep thought) and the riverside pathway (a place for daydreaming).
