Description - Mythform by Paul Douglas Carter
Nearamnew is the name of a public artwork created at Federation Square, Melbourne. The outcome of a four year collaboration between leading writer/artist Paul Carter and the Square's architects, Lab Architecture Studio, the 7,500 square metre ground pattern and seventy square metres of sculptured stories of Nearamnew represent a new vision of public art and its role in urban design. Federation Square has captured the imaginations of professionals around the world. Nearamnew is the story of how the artwork was conceived, developed and installed. It reproduces all the stories woven into the plaza, and explains where they come from, and how they were turned into 'concrete poems'. Nearmnew collects together over 80 outstanding photographs of the artwork, ranging from loving details of individual letter combinations to sweeping shots of the lettered landscape. The book is intended to seduce first; to educate second.
