Lookout - Cate Watkinson (2004)

Lookout - Cate Watkinson

Lookout is a landmark feature on the A1, situated on top of MetroCentre's Debenhams store.  

It is inspired by the enjoyment of shopping and old fashioned ‘sweetie jars’, taking the form of a glass and metal basket filled with five metal spheres, each measuring 2 metres in diameter. One of the spheres contains a time capsule created by local school children.  

The artwork provides a memorable navigation point into the MetroCentre’s red quadrant. It is 6.5 metres in height and is illuminated at night creating sequenced washes of colour.  

Funded by Capital Shopping Centres.
