URBAN SMART PROJECTS
Public Art Project
Painting a traffic signal boxes in Hobart, Tasmania. A anti vandalism program by Urban Smart Projects and the Hobart City Council. The design requirements were to show community pride, to not be offensive and show a unique in Tasmanian theme.
My design is inspired by the Giant kelp forest; large seaweed (kelp) forests found on the Tassie waters. These kelps are pretty amazing, as they can grow 10cm a day, and be as tall as 30 metres.
Using this opportunity to bring science stories to a larger audience. It is located near the busy Hobard CBD (corner Murray St and Bathurst St).
