Metamorphoses at Sydney Tower
Meagan Morris pages -


A discussion of issues of representation and rhetoric in relation to Sydney Tower - a purpose-built leisure and consumption space. Morris’s ultimate point of focus is not the building’s contradictory significations, or even the changes in the way it gets talked about and represented, but the fact of change itself - changes in her own perspectives as well as in the Tower’s interior décor and in its wider cultural resonances over time. She offers a purchase on the dynamic and mobile structures and processes in which the object is enmeshed, offering a literally more ‘becoming’ approach to the question of how we are to respond to this emblem of a post-industrial economy.
