- The strength of this team is a shared fascination with diverse materials, and the meshing of different skills and experience.
- Horwitz and Steel are experienced in works of scale. Before branching into public art, both artists were known for their large-scale mixed-media artworks and installations. In the public sphere they have created huge overhead aerial whirligigs decorations transforming a Square for the Olympic celebrations in Canberra, large sculptural metal and lighting works, mosaics, landscaping, and decorative elements such as bus shelters and balustrades for shopping centres. They have worked with hundreds of members of different communities to mount large collaborative installations.
- Horwitz and Steel have used a wide variety of media in their practices; designing and making works of stainless steel and other metals, lighting, boulders, glass, tiles, wood, grass, tyres, projections, paper, plastics, and so on.
- Horwitz' design skills complement Steel's knowledge of fabrication and materials. Horwitz has been practising art full-time since 1978 and has shown widely in commercial, public and national galleries. She has taught studio practice and art theory in tertiary art institutions since 1983. Steel has been involved in a large number of public art projects in Canberra since 1994, and has applied in these projects his knowledge of materials and construction.
- Horwitz and Steel have established good networks with a range of fabrication firms, landscape architects, architects, and engineers in Canberra.
- Steel and Horwitz are experienced in the provision of comprehensive design details, contractual development, quotes and budgets, attendance of meetings, issues of insurance, time management, the adherence to safety and heritage regulations. On many projects they have managed a team of people. They have experience in sub-contracting work, and the employment of workers.
