Project summary

A major new artwork entitled ‘One: all that we can see’ touched down in Adelaide’s Lot Fourteen innovation district. The sculpture is by artist Sundari Carmody and was unveiled in June 2022.

The sculpture is a striking four-metre diameter ring made from black steel tube with a small white perspex section at the top of the ring that is internally illuminated by high-intensity LED. It represents the ratio suggested by contemporary physicists between the visible and invisible universe: the hypothesis is that 95% of the universe is made up of dark matter and dark energy, leaving only 5% of ‘normal matter’ visible.

The Government of South Australia funded public artwork is installed in Australia’s most exciting ‘ideas’ neighbourhood, outside the Australian Space Discovery Centre, and contributes to the transformation of Lot Fourteen’s North Terrace frontage and forms part of the public environment to spark curiosity, inspiration and sharing of ideas.

Di Dixon, State Project Lead Lot Fourteen says, “arts and culture are integral to Lot Fourteen, generating a meaningful sense of place and an active destination, through extraordinary, stimulating and immersive experiences. We hope that providing space for innovators and entrepreneurs where art, culture and technology exist in harmony will provoke creativity and innovation while also providing something for the whole community to enjoy.”
