‘Connection’ is an entry statement for the Centennial Park Cemetery, conveying the core values of compassion, inclusion, excellence and innovation.

The hands express a gentleness in the engagement, expressing care and support. Within the hand forms, the subtle orientation, finger position and space between the two forms, conveys openness and trust.

The vertical elevation of the artwork is centrally framed within a formal landscaping and complements the green backdrop of the parks trees and plants. LED lighting incorporated between the hands provides activation of artwork during the evening. This highlights the connection and energy between people through illuminating the form.
