AESTHETICS AND PERFORMANCE FOR AN INNOVATIVE NEW SCULPTURE
The Project – ‘Reverie’ In 2004, the City of Greater Dandenong and the Dandenong Development Board formed a partnership to commission an iconic artwork to be sited in a high profile area on one of the city’s busiest intersections, providing a focal point for motorists and pedestrians. Queensland artist Paul Johnson’s concept was chosen from a short listed pool of four artists. Johnson is an accomplished artist who has completed a number of innovative light-based artworks in Queensland. Reverie commands attention during the day with its contemporary hot dip galvanized finish and contrasting red elements and at night engages pedestrian life with its vibrant, interactive laser composition.

Atmospheric steel corrosion in Australasia is complex and varied due to Australia’s great size and diverse climatic zones.
After-fabrication galvanizing has a wide range of capabilities in service and this Far North Queensland location demanded performance in some of the most extreme conditions possible. After considerable research into serviceability and environmental impact, after-fabrication galvanizing was chosen as the most appropriate form of corrosion protection.
