Abstract

Tulisan ini merupakan satu tinjauan awal terhadap penghasilan 52 steel rod sculpture dalam konteks  perkembangan seni awam di bandar raya George Town, Pulau Pinang. Penciptaannya tidak hanya menonjolkan aspek keindahan formalistik dan ekspresi bentuk seni pembuatannya tetapi, di samping itu turut memaparkan idea serta tema keunikan identiti yang tersendiri. Berdasarkan tinjauan terhadap steel rod sculpture, idea dan tema keunikan identiti di bandar raya George Town dapat dihayati menerusi paparan jelas kandungan imej-imej visual di samping interpretasi tersirat latar penceritaan. Terdapat beberapa aspek kecenderungan idea dan tema penting yang menjadi asas penghasilan steel rod sculpture antaranya aspek perekonomian, paparan keunikan pakaian tradisional, elemen bahasa dan tulisan, nilai kemasyarakatan dan kekeluargaan, keunikan reka bentuk bangunan bersejarah, kepelbagaian agama dan kepercayaan, kisah ketokohan, dan akhir sekali keistimewaan bentuk sambutan perayaan masyarakat tempatan. Kesemua paparan idea dan tema keunikan ini dikemukakan sebagai satu refleksi kepada keistimewaan penjenamaan nilai sejarah, warisan dan budaya di bandar raya George Town sebagai identiti Tapak Warisan Dunia UNESCO.
