Circular public art commission
- Point Cook Town Centre
- Main Street
- Point Cook, Victoria
Circular is a series of eight cast-iron artworks installed along the footpath of Main Street, Point Cook, 23km from the city centre of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia.
Quietly integrated into the streetscape, the works playfully take the familiar form of manhole covers while referencing the stories, values and diversity of the Point Cook area.
Circular (2010) is a public art project by Melbourne artist Christine Eid from TOW and typographer Stephen Banham from Letterbox.
Commissioned by VicUrban and Walker Corporation, the works form part of the Wyndham City Collection. Art consultants Global Art Projects were the commissioning managers.
