About This Project

In May 2022, artist David Burrows installed 2 stereoscopic boxes on either side of the new pedestrian bridge near Chelsea Station.

The Station Street stereoscopic box contains a historic photographic image of the area, the old Chelsea Station in the 1920s converted into a 3D image and the Nepean Highway stereoscopic box features artwork by Bunurong artist, Adam Magennis.

Collaboratively they offer two modes of representing and remembering the place: documentary recording and cultural interpretation of the site.

Artwork details:
Stereoscopic photography combines 2 slightly offset images to create the illusion of 3 dimensions.
