The Waiting Seat

Submitted by: MADELEINE STEELE

Introduction

An outdoor piece inspired by a weekend with the Ngarrindjeri people of South Australia.

The Whole Story

The Waiting seat belongs in the Waiting Garden. It is made from recycled palette timber and marine ply.

The concept for this garden and seat was inspired by the Ngarrindjeri people of South Australia, who would wait at the border of their land before entering the land of another. Today, this respect for land and country has been largely lost.

The Waiting Garden would be located on the outskirts of Adelaide so that travellers and locals could pay their respect to country as they pass onto it. This seat provides a place of contemplation for the garden's visitors. It's circular design represents a threshold for users to pass through as they are welcomed to country.
