Digital artworks were printed onto vinyl skins and installed onto 56 Signal Boxes across various Inner City suburbs including Kings Cross, Newtown, Rockdale, Neutral Bay/North Sydney, Camperdown, Central and Redfern.
Art Pharmacy Consulting were approached by Lendlease Tyco Joint Venture to decorate Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) signal boxes across Sydney’s inner suburbs. The first round of this project was to cover 56 signal boxes in a printed vinyl wrap. The aim of this project was to brighten up the boxes, and avoid damage and graffiti by putting something aesthetically pleasing into the public space.
We sourced five local Sydney artists with a diverse range of artistic styles and cultural backgrounds. Each of the five artists were assigned 8 to 13 boxes. Their digital artworks were printed onto vinyl skins and then installed onto the boxes. Some of the boxes were installed over night as lanes of traffic needed to be closed, while others were installed during the day. The boxes can take up to 4 hours to fully install.
