Here is a b&w picture of "Dance me" captured during the "Destination Paradise" exhibition by Port Douglas playwright and artist, Jack Heywood. Jack made the image late one afternoon while the setting sun was streaming in the open side doors.
The Old Sugar Wharf venue was subject to natural lighting for the show and ambient levels changed dramatically through the day. During the late afternoons, the sunlight entering horizontally from the west made the sculpture 'glow' brightly with an almost surreal aura.
A number of people have since told me that one of the best places to view "Dance me" was from a passing boat ... due to the dramatic 'framing' of the sculpture in one of the adjacent vast doorways.
