Nearamnew is a work inscribed in the cobblestones of Federation Square consisting of nine regional forms constructed out of the letters that name the site—each containing a local vision of Federation. These regional forms and their embedded concrete poems are three dimensional. Cut into three depths of the surface of stone each layer of text interconnects diagonally and vertically. Comprises a whorl pattern, nine ground figures and nine vision texts.
Nearamnew was undertaken as a collaboration between Carter and Lab Architecture Studio.
