Freo's View


Posted in art, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on June 26, 2017


The new artwork in the Fremantle High Street Mall by Tom Mueller and Arianne Palasis is more than just three boring big poles with small artworks on top of them, there is also a sound effect with them.

Unfortunately the sound is barely noticeable and one has to be really close to hear it. That makes it ineffective, as most people walk by without knowing there is another element to the visual art component.

I do understand the consideration for nearby traders and that the sound can’t be too loud, but it needs to be cranked up considerably, otherwise the concept is totally lost.

I could only detect sound out of one of the coloured round speakers.
