BIRDS EYE VIEW

Road Repair Map Murals! We did it! Thank you to all the organisers and amazing volunteer painters who made this road mural possible! This birds-eye-view topographic map mural of a scale of about 1:1 is a landscape architectural vision of what many of our roads could look like if we dug them up and repaired the soil underneath! The North Point on the East side of the road mural is perpendicular to the road and accurate to True North, a reference to this part of Melbourne that is all gridded North, South, East, West. The city as a compass!

The road mural is on Florence Street, Brunswick, near Anstey Train Station. With thanks to Kate Longley for some of these photos. For more on the Anstey Better Block Party that took place on top of this road painting go to: ansteybetterblock.tumblr.com. If anyone has any dream future large scale road repair map murals do get in touch to talk more. X Tom

A Quiet Parade

Mural with Be Free in Fitzroy. The linked concept for this mural all came about kinda sub-consiously and developed as we painted it. The mural is near where the controversial proposed East-West tunnel will exit and we thought this mural celebrated alternative transport! Come on tunnel workers get on board!

I was so excited to make this steel sculpture “Three in a Tree” for my recent exhibition at Backwoods Gallery, made with the assistance of the one and only Herbz at Rah Creations! The  sculpture is 2 metre diameter and made from 8 mm thick steel. I’m really interested in creating and installing some public artworks like this, if anyone has any leads contact me at civil@antimedia.net. Thanks!

(with thanks to Roger Hyland for the photo above)
