The Boonji Spaceman

MM 0921 parting lead2

September 2021 - Placed at the end of the pier at Hodges Bay Resort & Spa, Antigua, the 1.5-ton sculpture, The Boonji Spaceman, is the product of a collaboration between artist Brendan Murphy and collector and resort co-owner Christopher Harding. Reinforced with a steel skeleton core, the carbon fiber exterior is designed to withstand hurricane-force winds and other natural elements. A proprietary chrome finish was applied to reflect light in spectacular hues from sunrise to sunset.

With engineering support by Andy Kostas, it took three days, 12 men, one crane and custom scaffolding to erect the “dancing spaceman” sculpture, which is mounted to a 5-foot-thick concrete pedestal. “The piece is a tribute to human ingenuity and resilience, and focused around my fascination with imagination,” said Murphy. “I believe the future is the one thing we’ll never run out of, and it’s up to each of us to write it.”
