Pyrmont, Tied to Tide

"Tied to Tide" is a kinetic artwork located along the boardwalk on the waterfront of Pyrmont Point Park, in the inner west suburb of Pyrmont. This artwork on Johnstons Bay was created by Jennifer Turpin and Michaelie Crawford in 1999. It is described as an ‘aquatic instrument’ involving eight identical arms of recycled hardwood beams and red ladders which are ‘played’ by the winds, tides and waves to independently rise, fall, pivot and rotate.


  1. Oh, my goodness! How I would love to see these in action. How creative. What a thrill to watch them all moving up and down and side to side at the same time. This is amazing.

  2. All leading the eye down to my favourite bridge. Excellent perspective Jim.

  3. More creative sculptures and great shot!

    Happy Week to you,
