Officially titled 'Beyond the Frame', this work by artist Rebecca Whan was named Winner - People's Choice Award of the Wasteknot Annual Sculpture Prize 2012.

These cast iron moulding boxes were made at local foundries RC Whan, Goninan + OneSteel and have been used for many decades to produce iron and steel castings for Australian industry.

The boxes frame a new vision for Newcastle - a clean bright city reinvented against the backdrop of our industrial heritage.
