Extant - Sculpture

Extant is the CTV building memorial located at the Knox Plaza. It takes its title from a mariner's sextant and artist Graham Bennett comments that its navigational connections are about finding a way forward.  Extant means still in existence/not destroyed or lost. It is an artistic statement that looks to the future, as well as referring to the past.

Bennett hopes that his work will encourage visitors on their own journey to find out what it is all about. "There is no single point of view from which it will ever be fully comprehended. I hope it will encourage visitors to move around it. Good sculpture does look vaguely audacious. It must look confident and enduring, but it should also look risky."
