Pool by Lorna Green was a gallery-filling installation accompanied by music composed by Mark Hewitt on display at the Bonington Gallery from 19 October – 11 November 1992.  As each of Green’s sculptures are site-specific, her ideas and designs for the sculpture changed throughout the planning process, as demonstrated by the archival drawings, correspondence, and even a packet of sample materials.  In the end, the over 4,500 whole and smashed bricks sprayed with the aquatic colours of blue, green and purple, created the gallery-wide impression of a draining pool.  About the exhibit, Green wrote, “My first impression of the Bonington Gallery was that it was like a swimming pool.  You enter by going down the steps, the echoes are reminiscent of a pool and the shape and scale of the gallery confirms that impression.  I hope viewers will walk through and around the forms, absorb the sound and the colours and gradually let the installation work for them.”  NTU students helped Green install the sculpture.
