Docklands Playground Sculpture

On one windy day in Melbourne I managed to take some footage of a fun and playful wind sculpture. The sculpture is part of the Docklands, Melbourne, and situated within a children’s playground.

Watch the film in High Definition on YouTube.

The sculpture appears to be referred to as the “Blowhole” and “Docklands Playground Sculpture”. An earlier form, or variation, appeared as part of the “Sculpture by the Sea” exhibit in Sydney in 2000 with the title “Windy”.

Update October 2011: A metal plate in the near by children’s playground explains all. A photo of the plate appears below.

Blowhole by Duncan Stemler

Looking through to the Docklands playground wind sculpture

The artist credited with “Windy” at the “Sculpture by the Sea” and this sculpture “Blowhole” is Duncan Stemler, and the engineers of this sculpture appear to be Design Stainless Industries Pty Limited.
