An ongoing collaborative project with Ian Hamilton.
The Bower Tower Project
The Bower Tower Project is a long term collaborative art project between Ian Hamilton and John Hayward which began in 2010. The project combines elements of nature and architecture as mediums for exploring notions related to the environment, structure making and human creativity. Until now these ideas have manifested as art open air installations at places as diverse at the Queensland rainforest, the Arid Lands Botanic Park at Port Augusta, and the Adelaide hills region. The most recent addition to the project is 'The Bower Walk', a monumental installation at the New Royal Adelaide Hospital.
