AboutArrival and Departure comprises of two opposing forms redolent of nautical bollards, conceived by the artist Ian McChesney. Referring to the many historic voyages starting and ending in Plymouth they also mark the journeys taken by students, both physical and through time and endeavour. The forms are made from granite sourced from the De Lank Quarry on Bodmin Moor. Moving on is a site specific contemporary danceàÂ choreographed by Gemma Kempthorne. Inspired byàÂ theàÂ sculpture, Plymouth's maritime history and journeys, it will be performed by local dancers to anàÂ originalàÂ soundtrack during the unveiling.
