Car Pool: High Dive

Car Pool: High Dive is a serious/playful assemblage that celebrates the history of car manufacturing in Australia and mourns its sad passing. The toy cars and their makes/types refer to the association of cars with vital aspects of Australian life. The industry itself and the hundreds of thousands of jobs it has provided over the decades. The utes, jeeps and pick-up trucks essential to other industries like freight, farming and travel. The family car, the community car pool, the car as status symbol, its high status in leisure/ entertainment: car racing, children’s playthings, collectables.


The rusted diving board provokes the question, did the Australian car industry commit suicide or was it pushed?

The heart of the innocent child, held in the cupped hand of maternal love as a symbol of ancient faiths.


The heart pierced by indiscriminant carnage, loss, misery, displacement and death.


The fragility and small size of the piece belies the potency one act of war can have on humanity.
