Preaching to the Converter

[dropcap character=”E”]xhibited at the Art Gallery of NSW during Perspecta 1985 Preaching to the Converter combined Triwall Cardboard, Velvet and Cast Iron in a seven metre flow across the Museum floor.

[dropcap character=”A”] stage set of gigantic proportions, or rather a normal room viewed from the prespective of a child.  Castles and reverbatory furnaces, a liquid river of molten steel, or is it blood, flowing from the maw of a Bessemer Converter.  Bouyant on its surface hundreds of pistols in rusty cast iron bob along towards a Throne setting surmounting an Olympic podium, an ambigious promise!
