Stilt Walkers

Stilt Walkers - Front

The Stilt Walkers are based on a series of active and playful stilt-walking figures. The artist team sought to evoke visions of celebration, new experiences, skill acquisition, concentration, and simple pleasures.

The figures appear engaged as they strive to master the skill of stilt walking, while the middle figure seems close to losing its balance, there is an overall impression of fun and optimism. The concept's intent is to convey a visual message that the figures are having great fun acquiring new skills.

'The Silt Walkers' pays homage to the history of the Wellington Reserve Community Centre, including the Mackie Road Neighbourhood House, Scouts and Girl Guides.
