Round Up Maze
Shear Outback Museum museum environmental
Artist Marion Borgelt created a large scale outdoor sculpture in the grounds of the Shear Outback Museum in Hay, in south western corner of New South Wales. The ‘Round Up Maze’ is inspired by the award winning aerial photograph taken by photographer Peter Leaver, featuring a mob of 2000 sheep being mustered on the Hay Plains. The maze is an interactive experience for visitors to understand what it means to be inside sheep yards – the sights, the sounds, the dusty atmosphere. Trigger was commissioned to design panels to interpret aspects of the maze’s construction and meaning and assist in orientating visitors. Typefaces used reference log books and ledgers from sheep stations in the area. Smaller interpretive panel’s within the maze are signposts for an interactive audio tour.
