My Best Egg Yet 1998

Plaster, bamboo, steel, hesian and paint
Dimensions variable
A permanent, site-specific installation, commissioned by the (then) Director of Victorian College of the Arts, located in the Directorate stairwell.
This work is about the size and shape of a killer whale. It has made a lair of the directorate stairwell in the Elisabeth Murdoch building. In its nest lay eggs, hatched, on it's back are empty spore holes. Upon entering the stairwell it looms above, journeying up and around the three flights of stairs, several babies are seen scuttling up the corner. At the landing three enormous tendrils protrude from the wall, implying an even larger creature lying beneath the skin of the building itself.
