Brian Robinson’s environmental advocacy reached new heights at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco with three colourful crabs built from honeycomb aluminium panels.
Tilt was involved in the design development, engineering and manufacturing of Malu Githalayl – a major sculptural installation by Brian Robinson. This work formed part of a ground-breaking exhibition, Australia: Defending the Oceans at the Heart of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islands Art, presented at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco. CREATIVEMOVE and Onespace Gallery represented Brian Robinson on this project.
Artist Brian Robinson worked closely with Tilt throughout the design development, engineering and fabrication.
We prepared detailed 3D computer models for each crab, which were then utilised to produce 2D manufacturing drawings. The final installation showcases three vibrantly-coloured crabs, crawling up the façade of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.
Working with artists often yields remarkable creative collaboration. Our work with acclaimed Australian artist Brian Robinson is a prime example.
Honeycomb aluminium was used due to its lighter weight and high strength.
This project is a perfect example of how Tilt’s Industrial design expertise adds value to a project and enables exceptional outcomes for our clients.
