Sculpture by the Sea
In March 2011, Sculpture by the Sea in Cotteslow Beach, Perth, Australia featured over 70 pieces of art. The prestigious grand prize of $15,000 was awarded to a team of four graduates from the Central Institute of Technology: Marwa Fahmy, Stephen Genovese, Elizabeth Marpole, and Kate Parker. Their installation, “Lifeboat”, featured 1697 waxed-paper origami-boats trailing down a hillside. It symbolized the arrival of Willem de Vlamingh, a Dutch sea-captain who explored the southwest coast of Australia in 1697.
