PROJECT: Raoul Wallenberg Memorial

BRIEF: Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish bureaucrat who saved the lives of thousands of Jews by issuing Schutzpass (protective passports). This work takes this critical piece of paper at the centre Wallenberg's act of heroism and uses its form to create a sculptural memorial. This memorial utilises the folded form of the pass as it may have been presented to authorities with photograph and personal details. This work is composed of 35 stainless steel, etched "Schutzpass" fixed out off an existing curved steel wall. In their loose, organic formation, the folded elements look like a series of objects in flight, thereby acting as an abstracted symbol of freedom.
