Art­cy­cle presents Sketch­ing The Gamut; a body of work explor­ing and pro­mot­ing the poten­tials of The Syd­ney Green Ring to improve the sus­tain­abil­ity, liv­abil­ity, and bio­di­ver­sity of the Inner Syd­ney Region. All works are either propo­si­tional and spec­u­la­tive, or exper­i­men­tal mod­els describ­ing or evok­ing projects that could poten­tially be made in the real envi­ron­ment as a part of a larger inter­ac­tive cycling project called The Gamut.

The Gamut’, is an art project that will involve draw­ing upon the face of the city, the rough out­line of a cir­cle. This form, called The Syd­ney Green Ring will not be drawn in pen­cil or ink, but in the topog­ra­phy and built envi­ron­ment of the liv­ing city. By map­ping together and con­nect­ing exist­ing infra­struc­ture, green spaces, water­ways, bicy­cle paths, sites of his­tor­i­cal and artis­tic impor­tance, The Gamut will both dis­cover and inscribe this form in the aware­ness and imag­i­na­tion of its pub­lic. Thus empha­siz­ing and iter­at­ing these implicit con­nec­tions, The Gamut will endeavor to make them man­i­fest, actu­al­iz­ing the cir­cle into a uni­fied, usable, sus­tain­able form inscribed onto the already exist­ing topog­ra­phy of the city.

Sketch­ing The Gamut will include a one week exhi­bi­tion and a pub­lic forum to dis­cuss the issues raised by the project with the inten­tion of open­ing dia­logue and devel­op­ing strate­gies toward real world outcomes.

The Gamut is a large scale, out­door art event/exhibition located  along The Syd­ney Green Ring that will take place in 2012.
