Historical information

The Flock is a kinetic sculpture made up of 11 parts. It celebrates a local migratory bird, the ibis. The sculpture comprises tall steel poles with a steel ibis balanced on the top of each pole by its beak. Balanced on a spherical joint to allow fluid movement in all directions, each element of the Flock is designed to look like a bird in flight. The kinetic wind-powered elements of the artwork were inspired by the nearby Waubra Wind Farm.


The artwork is of aesthetic and social significance to the people of Ballarat
