Sydney's Wynyard Station wooden escalators, built in 1932, have been preserved and repurposed as a sculpture titled Interloop, in the station where they operated for over 80 years.
Via designer Chris Fox:
First installed in 1931, the historic timber-escalators - which have served Sydney's commuters for over eight decades - held a sense of time, journeys, and travel before they were removed this year. Interloop resembles, in part, the original escalators: important for Fox is creating an otherworldly space above people’s heads. The artwork explores the idea that people are stationary on an escalator whilst also travelling, allowing for a moment of pause that occurs mid-motion. The sculpture resonates with people in this state, referencing all those journeys that have passed and are now interlooping back.
A major milestone for Sydney and for transport for NSW, who commissioned the large-scale sculptural project, interloop provides an important legacy, helping to maintain and celebrate the historic identity of the city, while also looking to its future.
