'Interloop' - Wynyard Train Station

Not only boat builders... When artist Chris Fox calls on us; we know we are in for something spectacular.

Not only boat builders… When artist Chris Fox calls on us; we know we are in for something challenging and spectacular. Over 6 months of highly technical engineering and problem solving, Chris’s latest vision ‘Interloop’ is now hovering over commuters at Sydney’s Wynyard Station. This award-winning structure comprised of (over) a kilometre of welding at Lumark’s Hemmant workshop. Template & jig building and testing were all a part of this complex build to ensure a seamless and smooth installation over a 48hr period. ‘Interloop’ is built from high strength marine grade aluminium and suspended via steel beams. The original wooden escalator treads were transferred to the sculpture giving a touch of nostalgia to this sensational, revived piece of modern art.
