Reptation

Reptation explores how physical elements behave when affected by natural forces. The work experiments with giving the natural properties of one physical entity to another, in this instance exploring how sand dunes might behave if they had the physical properties of water. The work is designed to be calming, pulsing inwards and propelling outwards in a breathing like motion similar to that of the ocean’s tide, creating a reflective state for people in the space.

Reptation is part of the Home Art Collection

At Home, we believe in the power of art. The Home Art Collection is created to enrich our spaces and the lives of our residents. Featuring the diverse stories and perspectives of emerging and established Australian artists, the collection includes painting, sculpture, photography, and digital art both commissioned and acquired. Designed to create moments of reflection, beauty, and inspire curiosity and conversation, the Home Art Collection, like a well-curated home, will grow and evolve over time.
 
Located in some of Melbourne and Sydney’s most desirable neighbourhoods, our expanding portfolio of rental communities gives us a platform to build a unique Australian collection. Developed by Home and our curatorial collaborator Craft, the Home Art Collection will be supported by a dynamic in-building art program that will include artist talks, events, masterclasses, and workshops.
