The old Wooden Escalator of this station has been transformed into a suspended work of art

It is often said, but in life: nothing is lost, everything is transformed (or in any case, should). And it is not the artist we are going to talk about today that will come to say the opposite. Native ofAustralia, Chris Fox is an artist who had the idea to create a fascinating and impressive work at the station of Wynyard à Sydney.

christened "Interloop", his project takes the form of two Escalator which have literally been transformed into work of art. But to understand the origin of this project, you need to know their story. It's in 1931 that the first Wooden escalator were born at the railway station Wynyard. These have been used for more than 80 years old and quickly proved to be a symbol of modernity and of technology.

But after more 80 years old good and loyal services, it was time to replace these Escalator wooden by more modern. But there is no question of throwing them away. The artist Chris Fox then had the idea to create an impressive artwork in the form of twisted ribbon from these two Escalator in wood.

This absolutely impressive artistic work, fixed on the roof of the station of Wynyard, now overhangs the new Escalator. A nice tribute to these wooden Escalator and their 80 years old of existence that are now a new life in the most beautiful way. To know more about the project "Interloop", we suggest you visit the portfolio of Chris Fox.
