These 80-Year-Old Wooden Escalators Become A Beautiful Sculpture

Turning old wooden escalators, 80 years old, into a beautiful aerial sculpture celebrating both the past and modernity? This is the idea of the Australian artist Chris Fox, whose creation entitled Interloop has just been installed in the Wynyard Station of the Sydney underground. This monumental installation pays tribute to the old wooden escalators of the city, since replaced by more modern metal versions.
