At Midnight on New Year's Eve, the S.S. Poseidon, en route from New York to Athens, met with disaster and was lost. There were only a handful of survivors.

About

This is a monument to an unacknowledged collective; drawing attention the plight and sacrifice of those previously overlooked. To attempt to create a fitting tribute to the victims of this disaster takes great responsibility and compassion, after much deliberation, sculptor Matt Blackler for such an onerous commission.

Working through themes of water, melody and loss the sculptor is endeavouring to engage and immerse the viewer within anguish and grief. Integrating the acclaimed refrain 'There must be a morning after' by Maureen McGovern is key to invigorate a united response and absorbing us into a multi-sensory spiral of sorrow. 

With a wealth of experience and relevant expertise, we are pleased to announce that Inertia Drives have been chosen as the contractors assigned to the fabrication and installation. To promote accessibility Inertia Drives will allow the public to follow the progress of the project through photographs published through the gallery.
