Encircling   [2006]
Asphalt, yellow paint, road sign, 14.8 x 21.9 m
Scape Biennale, Christchurch, New Zealand

This public artwork adopted the urban language of street signs, asphalt and road markings to create an irregular circular road in North Hagley Park. Its ironic system absurdly redirects traffic into a never-ending circuit on a road to nowhere, thus undermining the usual objective of maximum practicability in urban design and planning.
