Artist's Description

The original quote …

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” Gandhi

The powers that be seem to be blind to the plight of the old trams stored for “safe keeping” in an abandoned shed that lets the rain pound in through a broken glass ceiling.

As recently as August this year discussions were still taking place as to the solution of what to do with the now fragile trams. No concrete solution in sight.

Meanwhile the area is littered with spray cans, broken televisions and home to transient night marauders who mercilessly smash the trams and paint any available surface. I have asked myself; “is this art or anarchy?”

It is a war zone between those who try to protect the trams and those who seek to destroy them …

and the whole world seems blind.

And eye for an eye © chasingsooz 2010

For “Tram” an exhibition to be held in Cherrybrook, November 2010

Update 2012: This area is no longer accessible. The site has been taken over by developers and the area is being cleaned up and what’s left of the trams salvaged.
