This pays homage to the Scalyfin fish living around the Busselton Jetty, who popped into the jetty webcam as I sought inspiration for an artwork. They seemingly called “pick me, PICK ME!!” and an idea was born…. Juvenile Scalyfins are a vibrant yellow color with brilliant blue markings. The idea was conceived and constructed around the northern hemisphere “mid autumn festival”, when traditionally children would play with lanterns in all shapes and sizes as I did in my childhood. This is thus a modern replica of my own Scalyfin lantern – the light symbolizing hope that I will soon be able to see my family living interstate and overseas.
