Artist's Description

The original hardwood escalators at the York Street entrance dated back to 1931 and were recently removed to make way for an upgraded modern design.
Off site, a purpose-built aluminium base was fabricated which required more than one kilometre of welding.
This accommodated 244 of the old escalator’s treads and four combs which were displayed around the twisting metal body.
The main structure was then transported to the site in 16 separate sections.
Weighing five tonnes and measuring 50m in length, the constructed artwork was suspended from steel beams installed above the base of the new escalators.
All up, the project took six months of design and engineering, 12 weeks’ fabrication and a tight 48-hour installation.
