The Canberra Airport provides a stimulating environment for travelers, with a group of commissioned sculptures by renowned artists, including Phil Price, Haruyuki Uchida and Andrew Rogers. Neil will share his insights on this group of unique site specific pieces and his perspective on the temporary inflatable structure, TWIN MINIGAGARIN.
