Wireless Hill Memorial

Client: City of Melville, Perth, Western Australia, Australia

This war memorial, known as 'The People', gives the people of Melville a space of reflection - a visible link between the past and the present. Nine panels are arranged in such a way, that when viewed from a certain aspect and distance, they depict a famous First World War panoramic photo. 

The north-west side captures the eerie silence of Australian troops making their way to battle. The south-east side features words laser cut into rusted steel that form silhouettes of Australians in uniform, from World War I to the present. 

The community provided the words, reflecting a modern day interpretation of the significance of war.
