Artist Repurposes Historic Escalator To Create A Mind-Bending Installation That Feels Like A Dream


Australia is known for weird wildlife and poisonous snakes, but nothing of the architecture (except the Opera house). This new installation wants to put the continent/country in the surreal building’s books of the most traveling photographers.

Wynyard station installation (Sydney) which looks like it was cropped out from “Inception” and dumbed at the heart of the commercial capital of Australia is conquering the hearts of Sydney citizens and city’s visitors.

Titled the “Interloop” and weighing more than 5 tons, this ceiling sculpture was made from the parts of the old wooden escalator on the site, before it was removed to make way for more modern steel replacement. Designed by University of Sydney professor of architecture Chris Fox, it is supposed to represent an interaction between the new and old.
