Alloa

Rob Mullholland was chosen to design this major piece of public art as part of the Imagine Alloa project, now situated at the top of Alloa High Street.

The sculptures are made from marine grade polished stainless steel which has a highly mirrored surface. Each figure standing at over 2.7 meters and nearly a ton in weight creates its own shape and form.

The polished mirrored profiles constantly alter in appearance as the light and weather changes throughout the day. The mirrored surfaces are slightly distorted, this was intentional as Rob wanted to create a more interesting reflection and to invite the viewer to look into this altered image of their surroundings in a new way.

They are interactive and allow the public to create their own interpretation and meaning. In essence the figures stand passively absorbing and reflecting the people and day to day life of the town, capturing and momentarily recording the constant flow of daily life. The sculptures celebrate modernity change and growth of the town.
