Aspects of Healthy Bay Wetlands by Baden Johnson
Aspects of Healthy Bay Wetlands by Baden Johnson has created an immersive landscape experience for users of the pocket park that links Palm Plaza and the main street in Dandenong. The area has some of the highest pedestrian movement due to its proximity to the Market.
The 20 metre long panorama transforms the space using spray painted imagery of tree lined grass lands, wetlands and the Dandenong creek.
Ashby, who has previously undertaken an artist in residence at Heritage Hill in Dandenong, has worked with local students to bring his artwork to life.
Baden explains ‘The artwork is a reminder of the natural world in our contemporary urban environment.” Passers-by will be immersed in a tranquil natural setting.
Baden has completed a number of projects in Melbourne laneways including ACDC Lane and the iconic Hosier Lane.
