Artist's Description

Cockatoo Island Turbine Shed steel girder markings.

Cockatoo Island is a hertiage listed in the middle of Sydney Harbour and is also the largest Island in the Habour. Since European settlement the island has been used for incarceration of convicts, industrial schooling and ship building. Maritime idustrial activity was ceased in 1992. 10 years later the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust was established and this island was placed into their care. Rehabilitation and restoration of the island is continueing and upon each visit you are sure to note chages.

This was my second visit to the Island and this time the trip was instigated by my wife, as she had never been here. It was a day out with the inlaws with all of us enjoying the photographic delights of this wonderful place. The weather did get the better of us on this day as a afternoon thunderstorm drew the days activity to a close.

When you spend time wandering around a place such as Cockatoo Island you start to notice the little things. The empty work benches, disused machines, broken windows, old sandstone buildings and markings. On one of the many I channel supports of the Turbine shed someone had placed two of the “Asset Inventory” stickers. Along with the stickers was a couple of burn marks, chalked numbers and inked names.
