Ipswich Houses Commission and Exhibition
Artists: Barbara Heath in collaboration with Malcolm Enright
Title: Two x Four x Eight
Concept Statement: The work references the universal forms and specific patterns of historic Queensland architecture by grouping three simple units into a series of relationships.
Each unit is perforated with patterns derived from two historic Ipswich houses, ‘Mona Cottage’ and ‘The Chestnuts’. The patterned perforations like their architectural prototype, imply both protection and barrier, they define permeable boundaries that permit light but also cast shadows.
Urban transition is imagined; by adding and subtracting, re-aligning, inverting, re-grouping. Shifted patterns cast their familiar text through past, present and future.

Here – I’ve posted a suggested installation done by Barbara but actually the install is up to the client, the x28 units can be configured anyway (anyone) sees fit – build a mansion or build a compound:
