The artwork is intended to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of North Terrace and by extension, the many layered cultural facets of South Australia. It is called ‘Tracks’ because the stories are presented as moving tracks of electronic text in vertical columns, in an LED(lighting omitting diode) medium. It is also called ‘Tracks’ because the siting of the LED pillars is determined by a ‘variable grid’ ground pattern which forms a significant feature of the new landscape design. It celebrates the cultural heritage of North Terrace through the composition of four text gathering histories, anecdotes, facts and aspirations under the four headings of air, water, fire and earth. These stories are presented to the public as four colour differentiated continuous streams or tracks of electronic text in four columns placed on the northern side of North Terrace.
