The Scenic Rim Regional Council is proud to have commissioned the Blumbergville Clock, which honours the spirit of resilience, particularly that of the farming community following the natural disasters of 2011 and 2013. The name "Blumbergville" is an historical reference to the early name for the township now known as Boonah.
The name captured the imagination of artist Christopher Trotter because of its historical relevance. Also the name`s intriguing sound seemed to match the style of his work.
This sculptural time piece features pieces of equipment sourced from the district that have been re-imagined. The interaction of objects with nature, man and time are of particular interest to the artist who also believes that the element of recycling in his work helps promote the concept of creative solutions to future generations.
It was created at Christopher Trotter`s Boonah property where he collaborated with local clockmaker David Bland to create a functioning clock within the sculpture.
