Looking Glass 2000
Dimensions (H x W x D)
This stream celebrates Melbourne`s sister city relationships with Osaka, Tianjin, Thessaloniki, Boston and St. Petersburg. Denise Sullivan's glass sculpture in the deeper pools uses reflections and relationships to represent the bond between cities. The bridges suggest links between physically separated people. The water itself, while representing a local stream, also suggests the global connection of the six port cities. Sister cities – 2000 – Looking Glass – Denise Sullivan

It was formerly located at City Square but was removed due to works associated with the construction of the Metro Tunnel Project. The glass artwork components are now in storage.
