In 2016, Cultural Capital (the consulting firm through which I practice) was contracted as the Urban Design Enhancement Consultant by Transport for NSW for major connective infrastructure works taking place at Wynyard Station.
The result of our work on this project is a dramatic addition to art in Sydney’s public domain, and the city’s most dynamic site for digital and moving image art.
Wynscreen is a 23 metre long LED screen showcasing works by internationally renowned and emerging Australian artists, seen by thirty thousand commuters a day. Cultural Capital curated, commissioned and programmed the entire collection of eighteen works in partnership with our guest moving-image curator Alessio Cavallaro.
Cultural Capital typically commences significant and innovative art projects of this nature with a feasibility study that researches the opportunities, analyses the site and considers its public usage. Implementing the project requires us to develop the art strategy, curate the program, commission the artists, provide technical direction, oversee delivery of the artworks, and manage the project and its stakeholders.
