Target Practice

Hossein Valamanesh

Target Practice is inlaid into brick and takes on the appearance of a giant compass: a wooden axis leads to ceramic tiles making up the compass guide. Located at the top of the Barr Smith Library stairs in the University of Adelaide, the work can be easily identified with student life characterising the aims, hopes and dreams of youth.
