Access All Levels
Responding to the architectural vision of Flinders at Tonsley, Deb Jones and Christine Cholewa aka CHEB, revisit the basic principles of light, refraction and reflection through their site-specific installation Access All Levels. The work, inspired by the voids and expansive light wells that are a feature of the building, speaks directly to the architects guiding design principles – to capture connections, reveal the purpose and create a place you would rather be.
With the use of large scale custom designed mirrors CHEB extend lines of sight, opening portals to unexpected vistas and offering viewers an uncanny experience of seeing through the building. Cleverly positioned reflective glass transports the unsuspecting from the ground floor to a view from the third floor, enabling them to look around corners and back to where they have come from.
Traditionally trained glass artists Deb Jones and Christine Cholewa met through the JamFactory glass studio and have been operating collaboratively for the past six years. Working in the realm of public art, they have created a number of community installations including the Royal Adelaide Hospital (2014), the Mike Turtur Bikeway Public Art project for the City of Holdfast Bay (2014) and the revitalization of Dale Street, Port Adelaide (2014).
